I had excision surgery and a myomectomy to remove two large fibroids in November and I recovered really well post surgery. I had three periods in quick succession but they were all much lighter, shorter and less painful than previously. I wasn't experiencing much pain at all during other times in my cycles either.
I returned to work in early January and feel like I'm back at square one. I'm an Early Years teacher so my job is very active - lots of standing, lifting, bending and stretching. I'm spotting in between periods and my cycles length has gone from at least 30 days to about 20 days. I'm also having the same levels of pain as I did prior to surgery throughout my cycles.
I honestly feel utterly defeated by the whole thing. I had a fight to get the excision surgery as I live in North Wales where only diathermy is carried out. Eventually I got to a wonderful surgeon over the border and had really high hopes that this would work for me. My husband and I have been TTC for 3 years and I've been told that this surgery will boost our chances of conceiving naturally (we're on the list for IVF too), but I really hoped it'd help with the pain too. Significant surgery was carried out on my uterus but there was no mention of adenomyosis.
Has anyone experienced a return of pain a couple of months later? Has it subsided in time?
