I just had a laparoscopy 4 days ago. Already fed up and wishing I'd never had it! I had been asking to check for endo for nearly 28 years, low and behold, I have endometriosis on my bowel and bladder and had some removed during my lap as well as having polyps removed from my womb. I'm considering going back to work tomorrow, just not coping well being stuck in the house. However I'm still in quite a bit of pain internally, uncomfortable, still feeling nausious and generally unwell. I have read on every medical site you should be able to start going about your normal life within a few days without discomfort and it helps with the healing. I always thought I was quite hardy but I have been doing the housework and looking after my pets as I did before since the day after I got out - I can't say I feel better for it. Why am I not coping then? What's everyone elses recovery time when you all started back at work, at the gym, going about your normal daily routine? I feel like I'm being a bit pathetic.
