After reading another post about recovery after second op, I am now panicking.
My situation is - I was diagnosed with endo with exploratory lap in April at the grand old age of 37 having suffered with severe pain since I was about 15. Surgeon said I was riddled with endo, so much so that he couldn't remove any. All he could do was release my ovaries and tubes as they were attached to my womb. My womb was really being tilted by the endo etc
The recovery for this wasn't pleasant at all, as I lot of you will know as you've been there.
Well - I have my second op this Thursday, to remove the endo. I am a single Mum to a 4 year old and she is going to her Dad's Thursday to Sunday so that I have a few days to recover (I remember being up all night of the last one due to the pain of having the trapped air). This is good as last time my daughter kept sitting on my lap :S
Anyways - I am worrying as I have two jobs which I do from home, with one I have a week extension so gives me a week off from that. The other job I've told them I'm unavailable this Thursday and Friday, but available from Monday. AND - me being the crazy lady that I am, went for an interview last night and now have a third job. They want me to start asap. I've told them I'm having an op on Thursday so might not be able to start straight away - like, not at the beginning of next week.
So - essay written, I am now massively panicking that I'm just not going to be well enough to do all my jobs and look after my daughter/get her to preschool etc next week. HELP! Please can people tell me that they recovered quickly from a similar situation??? I am not sleeping at the moment, like hardly at all and I just feel so stressed out and down
