Hello, (I'm new here),
I have been suffering with severely heavy periods, tiredness etc for many years. It has got worse recently and I finally visited the doctor. Ive been for a scan and found that I have polyps and I am going to have a laparoscopy to remove them.
Has anyone else had a laparoscopy for the same reason? To say I'm bricking it is an understatement. Since the birth of my 2 children (both of which were horrific) - I am petrified of surgery, so it doesn't help with this in my mind.
I'm just wondering what pain i should expect. What is the general surgery like? I have a 5 year old & a 3 year old and worried about caring for them after. And finally, how long did people take off work? I work in an office, and it is not a strenuous job in the slightest.
Eeeeeeeek, I'm so nervous - i don't even have my appointment yet and I'm scared. It'll be a nightmare when it comes around.
