Hi ladies, I've finally decided to go down the private healthcare route as I've had no contact or help from the NHS apart from being told to see a pain specialist, and there being a 6 month wait for a Laraproscopy. My local private hospital has said I will be having the procedure within a couple of weeks, I just have a few questions about post op.
How long does it take to recover from the operation? I work as a waitress so my job involves being on my feet for long hours with lots of heavy lifting, I want to make sure that I take the correct amount of time off.
How long after the procedure should you wait to have sex again? Sounds silly but I'm worried about it because the op is so invasive in that area.
Also, this is my first operation, so I'm extremely nervous about being under anaesthetic etc, some advice about that would be great, I suffer with anxiety so this is quite distressing for me.
Lastly endometriosis is not confirmed yet, so I am worried if the doctors don't find anything what the next approach would be? I don't want them to think I'm just being dramatic with the pain but it genuinely is unbareable at times.
Thanks in advance
