Hi all, long time answerer, first time questioner hoping for some advice!
I had my laparoscopy at the beginning of March where endo was found and removed and ovarian cysts were removed by ovarian drilling. All went well, recovery was smooth.
However since the initial recovery period I haven't seen a massive difference in my pain levels. My periods are more regular but only last 2 days, they're very heavy and very painful but come and go quickly. Other than that I get 7-10 days of pain roughly 2 weeks later. Sometimes (like today) it is completely random and out of sequence.
I called my GP regarding the pain and he said to call my consultant (I went private). I called my consultant and he said he won't see me again until December at the earliest. During my post-op meeting and my phone call he has failed to tell me how severe the endo was, where it was found or what my next steps should be.
Sorry for the long post, I'm just a bit stuck on what to do next. Should I still be experiencing the same pains 6 months after my lap? Is there anything I can do in the meantime whilst I wait to be allowed another consultation? I'm currently managing with heat packs and paracetamol because I haven't been prescribed any pain relief but my emotions are everywhere with it and I feel a bit in the dark when I thought I would be improving by now.
Thankyou all in advance
