First lap tomorrow, nervous but relieved that it's finally happening

So after years of pain and been told it's normal to be in agony nearly all the time, I'm close to finally getting some answers. I'm not nervous about the lap itself as I've had operations before but I'm nervous about what they'll find, or should I say won't find. I'm not saying I want to have endo but at least if I do then I know I haven't wasted anyone's time and there is actually a reason for my pain. But now I'm nearly there I'm worried that maybe I don't have endo and I'll be stuck with this pain forever with no answers. Did anyone else feel like this just before their lap? x

Thank you ☺ xx

I felt exactly the same before mine and unfortunately for me it ended up that there is ‘nothing wrong’. I’m still back and forth to the drs trying to get some answers. I get what you mean sometimes not knowing is worse than having a reason for you pain. I hope your laparoscopy goes well and you have some answers soon. X

I felt exactly like that three weeks ago. I posted on here the day before going in for my laparoscopy. They did find endometriosis but on the opposite side of where I experience all the pain. Although I was just so happy they found something, I know that sounds mad.

Good luck xx

Ah sorry to hear but I’m pleased you’ve got a diagnosis - did you have the coil in the end?

No I can't have the coil as I have a bicornuate uterus

Exactly how I felt. Good luck today and let us know how it goes.

Big hugs xx

I have mine on Wednesday - I feel the exact same but KNOW I have it as I have an endometrioma! I think its years of being fobbed off and dismissed, makes you doubt yourself. Hope today is going well xx

I felt exactly the same before my lap, I wasn't nervous about the actual operation but I knew the outcome would be life changing. Good luck and I hope you get some answers! X

I have my first laparoscopy on the 23rd of July and feel the exact same. On one hand I don’t want it to be endometriosis as I could be loosing my dream job but on the other I want an answer to my pain.

I had an open myomectomy in December 2016 to remove a large fibroid so I’m really hoping it’s scar tissue which was one of the options.

All the best for your surgery!!!
