So, I had my first lap at the end of March. I was diagnosed with endo and the surgeon managed to remove quite a lot after diathermy. He told me the endo was quite severe (which makes sense as it had taken 10 years to diagnose). Since the operation, I have noticed a big improvement but recently I've started to get pain again where it was prior to the operation, sometimes it is quite intense. I really don't want to have to go through another lap as I had a tough time recovering but just wondered how long it took others before their symptoms started to return? Were your symptoms severe or more mild?
