I had a laparoscopy on Monday but a bit of backstory:
I started my periods at age 11 and they have always been excruciating to the point of missing school/work. I suffer so many symptoms of endo but my main concern is the unbearable pain with sex which had made me pretty much swear it off altogether until I can get it fixed (not fun for someone who's only 23!).
I saw countless doctors with most of them (men) telling me all women had painful periods and I just had to get over it. One doctor even laughed at me and told me I was being a drama queen. But I wouldn't take no for an answer and was eventually referred by a great GP to a gynaecologist that specialises in endometriosis. After a consult she basically said she thinks I needed to have a lap because she suspected endo.
I had my lap on Monday (two days ago) and didn't hear anything after I came to which I assume means she was very busy but I have a follow up next Monday. After a bit of research I've realised a week is actually a pretty quick time for a follow up, but I'm severely doubting that they found anything at all. It sounds awful but I'm sure most of you know the feeling that you actually want it to be endo, so at least there's an answer.
I was hoping anyone who's been through something similar could give me some advice. I'm not actually sure how many incisions I have as they are still covered but I feel like I've bounced back amazingly - almost too well making me think they found nothing and did nothing.
I'm super worried and upset they've found nothing and I will be back to square one 😕 Any advice is appreciated, thank you x
