I'm writing this from my hospital bed after having laparoscopy number four yesterday evening, and all things considered I'm feeling ok! Bit sore, but the painkillers are doing their job.
I had cysts on both ovaries removed and patches of endo removed from elsewhere. Last night my consultant popped in told me that I had really needed it, and that I'll feel like a new woman soon.
I've decided to change my diet now following the experiences of others on this site to try to cut down the frequency of these operations, which I've had every other year since diagnosis.
If anyone is new to this and worried about their first lap, please don't be! I know that's east for me to say now,but hopefully this is just a little bit of pain for a lot of gain...for a couple of years at least.
