I have stage 4 recto vaginal endo and have been struggling for years. I had my first lap last December to remove a 4cm cyst from the left ovary. The surgeon found endo on my appendix and my ulterior wall.
I have now been booked in for a bowel resection + removal of the endo within my gynae area. I am petrified. I don't know what to expect, they've said I might wake up with a stoma bag I might not. I have the bowel prep to do on Sunday. I am very very anxious and scared.
Has anyone else been through this and if so is there anything you would advise I take to the hospital to make my stay more comfortable? Also how long did you have to stay in hospital after your surgery?
Thank you x
