Hope you're all doing okay!
Just wanting a bit of advice from your own past expeiernces of having a diagnostic laparoscopy for Endo!
A bit of background-
I have been having all the symptoms of endo (painful periods to the point of throwing up, painful sexual intercourse, bowel problems, bloating etc) since my first period at 14.
I am now 21 and have spent that last 2 years in and out of my doctors trying to get answers! I was finally referred to my Gyno in October and have had an ultrasound and internal examination which both came back clear.
They are now sending me for a Laparoscopy for an endo diagnosis. I am currently waiting for the date of the OP to come through the post however the doc advised the waiting list is only around 2/3 weeks. I am really nervous about having an operation and am just looking for some advice on what to expect, how to prepare etc. I'm also really worried that the op will come back clear - infact as odd as it sounds thats what i fear most- that it is all in my head. I have no idea how i would explain my time off work to my employer if it comes back as a clean bill of health. any tips?
Thanks so much x
