I am awaiting my lap ATM. Due to the backlog on the NHS the wait has been so long and I'm getting to the point where I am freaking myself out thinking what if they don't find anything and there is nothing wrong. The reason I say this is because I don't experience the heavy bleeding and intense period pains many on here say they suffer with. I've been on the pill for 12 years and my period are pretty light lasting 3 days or so. The reason I was referred for the lap was the dragging pulling pain I am experiencing pretty much on a daily basis, pain after sex (sometimes extremely severe to the point I am writhing in pain). I used to suffer with bleeding after sex but that has settled the last couple of months although I'm avoiding sex since the pain so it's hard to tell. Also suffer with bad fatigue but I think that's due to the constant low level pain interrupting my sleep - pain is worse when I lie down. I just wanted to know whether anyone who has received a diagnosis of endo following a lap had the daily low level pain I'm experiencing that doesn't seem to be related to their periods. I just wish I didn't have to wait so long for surgery as the wait is making me doubt myself and I feel like I don't even know what's normal anymore.
Would be grateful to anyone for a reply x
