Had my lap on Friday and was doing ok until last night when I had a big bleed before bedtime (could be period).

Woken this morning riddled in pain - every bit of my body aches / hurts including my feet and ankles !?!? What’s that all about!

Paracetamol and iprobrufen are not touching it and hospital didn’t prescribe anything stronger :(

Feel like crying too. I was lulled into false sense of security yesterday I think.

No idea, but I would call 111 for advice if I were you. Hope you feel better soon.

I was discharged and only told to take paracetamol and ibuprofen, I’ve been taking a lot stronger as I had this from before my operation to manage the pain. Could be worth calling your GP tomorrow and see if they can give you something stronger.

I felt like I would have a good day then the next day take three steps backwards! X

Hi. I did call 111 in the end and was advised to go to a&e.

All ok thankfully and they were sure it was my period that was causing the big bleed. They said it’s unusual for it not to have been disturbed / delayed after the procedure.

Anyway, slept a lot yesterday once home again and managing the pain better now they’ve given me some co-codomal. Thanks for your thoughts ladies xxx
