First post on here
I had my first exploratory laparoscopy yesterday - home now and very sore!
I’m not sure whether to be pleased or not, but nothing was found on the lap. I originally went to my GP in April last year with horrendous period pain (only started getting pain 2 years ago) and really heavy flow. I was put on the pill and I stuck it out for 3 months or so but was having a period every week and I couldn’t handle it any more. My periods are still horrendously painful, heavy, my lower back is extremely painful, my legs feel heavy and numb and almost like I’ve done leg day at the gym for a week and pulled all my muscles. If I’m unlucky enough for it to fall in the week, I can’t go to work. I feel bloated a lot. Sitting, lying down, walking around - nowhere is comfortable.
I’ve been referred back to my GP after the lap and I just don’t know where it’ll go from here. I was lucky and originally referred quickly and to a private hospital so I’m grateful but I was sure they’d have some idea on what was going on.
I’ve read a lot of people have had to have 2-3 laps before docs found endo.
I wondered if anyone else had the same experience and had another diagnosis after being told it isn’t endo?
Sorry for the long post!
