Hi All, I'm pretty new to this but have found all of your posts really helpful. I'm going in for my first laproscopy tomorrow and am starting to panic. Was fine all along but having read the information given by the hospital it's quite overwhelming to say the least. My biggest fear is that they won't find anything and I'll be back to square one! I've had all the tests under the sun done already and this really is my last hope at a normal life! I'm 26 and have been suffering with pains since I was about 14. These pains became unbearable and daily for the last year. I recently lost my job as a result of being off so much (at least a couple of days a month) which in recruitment doesn't go down too well. I'm starting a new job on 5th September and am hoping I'll be fully recovered by then. It'll be just under two weeks from my op.. Does anyone have any tips on recovery or what to expect? I live in London with all of my family back in Ireland so don't have much of a support network here other than my boyfriend who has been great through all of this. I'm just wondering what your experiences have been and if you have any advice at all?
