3.5 months post op

3.5 months after surgery and I'm still in pain, it's now only cyclical but the pain is far worse now than it ever has been. My periods are heavier and I'm spotting for a few days before I'm due, which is not normal for me. My gp thinks the pain is from the healing going on inside as I had rather extensive surgery. Ive had 4 cycles since my surgery and still not conceived. I was told to try upto 9 months after surgery and then we'd look at ivf. I'm seeing my specialist on Thursday and hoping for some more answers.

  • If you had excision then it can take a while to start to feel better. If however it was ablation the. I'm afraid this may mean they didn't get the deep infiltrating endo and have missed some

    Can I suggest you join a closed Facebook group called endo revisited Uk as there's lids of help and advice there.

  • Hi Marcia it was excision surgery I had. They told me they managed to removed it all.

    Thanks for the advice, I'm already on that group too ☺
