1st Lap Nerves

Hi everyone im new here so hope im posting in the right place.

Had my 1st appt at endo clinic this week and have been booked in for a lap in the new year.

Consultant said theres a 50 50 chance he will find anything as ive had 3 children by 25. 2 of which were prem. Have red that endo can cause prem labour.

Really nervous about the lap as never had to be put to sleep before 😑

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Hey, I understand the nervousness you’re experiencing.

I have posts on my page up until my first lap and a day to day recovery after for a while with incision pictures. I’ve had many replies that were very helpful for me so feel free to take a look. If you have any specific questions feel free to ask me.

Try not to be. I am 1 day post lap and having a lap is fine. It’s the best part. You get knocked out and wake up a few hours later. I’m struggling with the gas pain and the stitching. I peed a lot. Like 15 times yesterday.

You will be fine.


Thank you for your reply.

Starting to feel much better about it.

Wishing you a speedy recovery x

I have just had my first lap, I was nervous too! Honestly my best advice is to stay calm, have somebody to look after you for a few days and don't push yourself to do anything ! X
