I've just joined the forum as I'm desperate for some help and advice.
I've just had a letter to tell me that my laparoscopy is booked in for 1st August-less than three weeks away and I have some questions that I would love some help with.
1. How long will I be signed off work for?
2. How long will it take me to be able to exercise again? The gym is my favourite activity and I'm going on holiday less than 6 weeks after my operation....very panicked!
3. Has anyone had the mirena coil and experienced any negative side effects? I've read that it can cause acne, down moods and headaches. I've battled with acne for thirteen years and it's only just started to go away, I don't want to go on something that will bring it back!
4. Has anyone had surgery and didn't get the coil? If so, how are you finding your periods now?
I'm feeling very scared about the operation and what the future will be after it in regards to my fertility etc. Any advice would be greatly welcomed.
