Hi my first time posting on here after joining a few months ago. It's been really informative of what I was possibly up against.
After years of awful symptoms which got worse month by month I had my first laporoscopy 7 days ago. When I woke up I had been diaognosed with stage 4 endometriosis and had spent 4 and half hours in surgery, they excised it all away. It was on both ovarys, majority of my pelvic wall and uterosacral ligaments.
My question is its day 7 and I'm still in an awful amount of pain. I felt better 4 days post op (might of over done it) but now I feel like I'm back to square one. I'm having trouble going to the toilet also as I cannot strain at all. I'm on stool softener but it isn't really helping.
Has anyone had a complex surgery like this and how long did it roughly take to recover? Not fully but enough to move around without being in alot of pain.
I have 2 children and I'm unable to do anything without making myself feel ill due to pain. I feel so guilty.
I'm starting to regret having this surgery done even though I really needed it due to how bad my symptoms were.
Please tell me there's light at the end of this tunnel.
