Hey, so this is my first post. I'm two days post laparoscopic surgery, in which they found endometriosis, and I have now, finally, been diagnosed officially. Doctor removed what she could and said the surgery was a success. I haven't spoken to the dr since, I have an appointment to go back in a few weeks for a proper chat when I won't be feeling so groggy and able to hold a conversation properly!
So I'm sore, to be expected, but my I didn't expect the pain in my shoulders/chest/back from the gas to be so painful! Any hints/tips to get that fine would be greatly received!
Plus now what... so I'm now officially diagnosed, after years of waiting and going back and forth to my GP. I was lucky enough to receive private funding to see a specialist this time and get the surgery done rather quickly, but that's it now. After my post op appointment I will have to go back to my GP and be seen/treated that way which I've had nothing but bad experiences with and was basically told I'm a woman get over it. So now I'm scared I'll be back to that.
Sorry for the long winded, random post! Still on medication and not really sure how to deal with being diagnosed now.
So onto the next stage!
