Still in pain after diagnostic lap

I'm nearly 6 weeks on after lap where they made 4 incisions and took some biopsies. Since then my bladder is over sensitive telling me to wee every hour and my tummy makes me look 6 mths pregnant. Seen a mia fascial osteopath last week who said it felt very inflamed and the pudential nerve irritated. Normally don't suffer this bad with bladder or bloating problems. Is this normal?

Hello susie, I had lap 3 weeks ago and my tummy too is swollen, it was the first week but then went down a bit but is swollen again now. I am on zoladex implants and it had been mainly since I had that to be honest. I've put on weight even though I'm still following a diet I've been steadily losing for 6 months 2.5 stone in total, now it's creeping back a pound or 2 a week! Miffed off is an understatement plus I feel significantly worse constantly than I did before! Many of us in the same boat I guess...... In relation to bladder, I usually go often anyway but didn't realise that may have been a symptom! I think I go a little more often now but no significant difference if I think about it. Xx


Hi thanks for replying. I can sympathize 're Zoladex, I was on it for over 2 years with breaks as I tried to get pregnant. Has it helped the pain? It did help me painwise so I put up with side effects but did put on weight which was hard to get off like you. The gynae I saw recently wants me to go back on Zoladex but not keen. The headaches, joint and bone pain was not nice.


Yep! Headache and back pain since I had the injection..... Pain is the same if not worse I think..... Did yours get any better? This is the first one I've had and have been told I will have 2 more at the moment.... Hoping it will get better!! X
