Hi Everyone, I’m come here looking for some advice on laparotomys as I’m due to have one in 2 weeks time. I’ve had 4 surgery’s on my endometriosis previously over the past 5 years however they have all been laparoscopic key hole with a recovery time of around 3 weeks each time . This time my specialist has said it needs to be open surgery ,a laparotomy, due to the deep endo around my peritoneum and around my bowels. He has also said I may need a colostomy bag for a few weeks after if extensive surgery on my bowel is needed. Has anyone experienced this and what was the recovery time like?
Thanks in advance xx
