I am home recovering from a lap done yesterday. I can't tell you how nervous I was. It was honestly soo quick and fast, and not painful till post surgery. The 6 hours after we're on a scale of 1-10 (with meds) 7 but after my mess wore off I just felt soo sore. The monthly pain I was getting with my menstruals was worse than what I feel now.
I had two endometriomas, one in each ovary. They were about 5cm each. I was told I could be losing one or both my ovaries; however I was able to keep both of my ovaries. Which I'm soo greatful for because I'd love to have another shot at having another child.
I've posted before about eating more plant based/vegan and it helped the pain, bloating, and inflammation I was having. I'm excited to heal so that I can start working out again. I was on strict orders to not do heavy exercises once the endometriomas were found, for the possibility of them rupturing or twisting.
I am so grateful I did this surgery. I have never had surgery before so I was frightened. But the last month I kept telling myself the benefits of this over rule the scary what ifs.
