Hi there, I've not posted before but I'm a bit baffled by everything and hoping for some advice. I had a laparoscopy a week ago where they removed a cyst, found some endometriosis and removed with helica treatment, unstuck part of my bowel, did a hysteroscopy and put in the mirena coil. I was wondering how long the recovery is likely to be as I'm still in pain which I'm taking paracetamol and ibuprofen for and also needing to sleep a lot more than usual. There were some complications post op where I fainted multiple times which meant I had to be in hospital for 4 days despite expecting it to be a day case. I'm 21 and before this I was very active and I know it's impossible to put a time scale on these things but wondered if anyone had experienced similar and how your recovery went? I'm struggling to get hold of my gp but not sure if this recovery is normal anyway. Sorry for the long post, I'd be really grateful of any advice! Thank you ☺
