Still in pain after lap

Hi Everyone,

Just wondering if it's quite normal to still have pain 3 weeks after lap.

It was easing up but this afternoon I have pain in my lower left side, in my mind in feels like it's coming from my ovary.

I had endometriosis removed from around the ovaries, bowel & bladder.

I'm so tired as well.

But does this all sound quite normal?

Love

Hi this is quite normal and 3 weeks is still early days. It can take up to 6 months to properly heal inside. Hope you start to feel better soo.

It's definitely normal as things are trying to heal internally, it takes a few months but if you have any concerns see your GP or consultant x

Thank you sunshine, sorry to hear you are still poorly. Are you getting bad pain?

To be honest don't think they really know!

They have given me antibiotics & pain killers.

I think there is something wrong with my bladder!

Hope you feel better soon! Yes I am. I had antibiotics as the doctor thought I had an infection but it turned out I didn't. I'll probably make a trip to the doctors Friday just to get check out. Xx

Hope your'e feeling better today?

I'm await on Surgery to remove Endo from same location.

Earlier this year I had my diagnostic lap, and was shocked by how terrible I felt, lasted up to 3wks. Turned out I was allergic to the antibiotics they had given me!

Wishing you a speedy recovering and pain free soon X

Hope you get your appointment through soon & hope you have a quick recovery.
