Hey everyone! I'm new here and just wanted to get a bit of feedback on what other peoples post surgery experiences were. I'm 29 and had my first laparoscopic surgery at the end of October to drain a large endometrioma cyst on my right ovary - however they ended up discovering extensive endometriosis which had spread to my womb, left ovary and bladder... which all had to be removed as well as having to cut out the endometrioma instead of just draining it. I lost 20% of that ovary and the surgeon said he ended up doing a lot more more work on me than he had anticipated. I was pretty much bedridden for 2 full weeks after surgery and in lots of pain and discomfort for 8 weeks. Its now 4 months on and although I definitely feel an improvement pain wise and energy wise, I still feel very tired and sore on my lower right side (where the ovarian cyst was) especially when I do anything remotely physical. Could this just be healing pain? It feels like its taking forever to get better! I am also still very bloated, particularly at night - I look about 3 months pregnant! I've read online that it can take up to 6 months to feel the full benefit of the surgery - has anyone else had this experience?
