Hello all I was just looking to hear about your own stories of having a laparoscopy and how you felt after it. I'm 1 week post op and still in absolute agony. I am taking pain killers every 4 hours and they do help but I still have to take tramadol for extra pain relief. I didn't get any sleep last night due to pain. I am trying my hardest to get up and have a small walk but I can't do it. People are expecting me to be up on my feet by now and they just don't understand. I had endometriosis removed on my ovaries and bladder. I'm also constipated so I don't know if that's adding to my pain. How long was it before you felt better? When did you go back to work? I can't see myself being back to work anytime soon all I can do is shuffle to the bathroom and back or go to the kitchen for a drink. Feeling fed up. 😔😔😔 I appreciate any kind of advice.
