Hey ladies - I have my diagnostic lap on the wednesday 17th of may in the afternoon - first of all I'm dreading not eating all day!
My period will be due just after this date so I'm even more nervous for pain after surgery along side my usual agonising period pain, thankfully my work are letting me have from Wednesday till the Monday off to recover - think they are sick of me being high on codeine and constantly complaining and crying in pain at my desk that they are willing to be so understanding (I work with 4 women and 40 men!!!)
Another thing I'm really worried about that I don't think my friends and family understand as much is - what if they don't find anything?! What if the past 12 years of issues are all in my head? Or it ends up being something completely different causing my pain that they won't see when they do my diagonosric lap? Did anyone else feel this way?
The gynaecologist I saw who booked me in for the lap was actually just covering for the gynae that I will be doing my surgery so I feel abit worried that Iv not actually met this person yet too, but maybe that's just me over thinking things.
Did the gynae say anything to you/your carer straight after a diagnostic lap to give you an idea what was found? Or do you have to wait till your next appointment? I am very impatient and feel like not knowing will just be torture as it is.
Lastly does anyone have any advice on what to wear/take with me to hospital/ have around the house for the following days?
Thank you so much everyone
