Iv been off work for 7months as I am a carer for young adult with autism as i have signs on endometriosis. I'm also having uterus contractions (like labour) but I never been pregnant.
I can only take paracetamol, as ibuprofen and that irritates my bowels . Obviously paracetamol does nothing so the pain im in on a day to day basis. The only thing that makes it bare able is heat (heat pads/water bottles)
I'm having my first laparoscopy done in 2weeks time. Iv never had an operation before nor been put to sleep, so I'm nervous and don't no what to expect.
Even though I have family and friends around me, I feel so alone. Also feel bad that this is happening to me and making then worry. 9/10 times I put on a happy face just to try act like I'm okay.
I have no clue what to expect of my life now. If I'll always be like this, will I ever get better. I'm 19years old and I'm living life like a petitioner, I can't work nor sleep, I can't go out unless I'm in a wheelchair or a short walk no more than 5/10 mins(if I'm lucky) , I spend my days in bed as it's confortable and warm which helps with pain.
I'm trying to find a way where I can do my health and social care without doing a placement...I want to get my life back but I have no clue how as pain is totaly taking over it.
With a laparoscopy how long are you put to sleep for? And how long after do you get results?
Sorry for the rant
