Hi ladies, hope you're all well.
I had my first long awaited laparoscopy yesterday and have been diagnosed with endometriosis as expected. My discharge summary says I had areas of active and inactive endometriosis in pouch of Douglas, uterosacral ligaments and UV folds and it was treated with Diathermy. Now I know I'm no doctor, but I do have some knowledge, but I feel as though I wasn't explained about what any of that actually means?! Google has confused me and I can't stop thinking about it! If anybody can shed some light please message me!!
I'm also really confused as to what happens now. Again my discharge letter says no follow up required but open access for twelve months. I wasn't explained though about the chances of it reoccurring and what to expect. Am I going to have normal periods now? Is sex still going to hurt? I'm guessing it's different for everybody, but im still very uninformed.
Also ladies, how long have you experienced post op pain and any tips to help with the bruising/ripping feeling?
Thankyou all in advance
