I was unable to have my laparoscopy on Monday morning as I was feeling ill, exhausted, pain from endometriosis all night and just couldn't sleep. Also, I was getting over a cold and my chest felt sore. I explained this to the hospital and they told me if I was feeling unwell then I shouldn't come in for the operation. I felt devastated and upset after getting ready and prepared for it and can't believe it happened. Although, I think it was the right thing as I had concerns about how my body would cope and after effects as I also have ME/chronic fatigue syndrome. My next preliminary date for the operation is 4th March which I suppose isn't too long and I may get a cancellation. It's just all an anti-climax and getting used to things being on hold for longer.
I'm going to see my doctor to get something to help me sleep the night before for the next time when I have my laparoscopy operation to remove adhesions and the outer shell of a cyst I had drained in May last year. Also, I was thinking of asking him to refer me to a hypnotist or hypnotherapist to have some hypnosis to help me sleep.
Does anyone have any advice to help sleep or medications they were prescribed that helped them?
