Hi ladies, hope you are all as pain-free as possible today. I have my pre-op assessment tomorrow morning. I was just reading my letter and it says "please allow at least half a day for this appointment"! Surely that can't be right? I thought it would bea look through the questionnaire I filled in, maybe a blood test, ask questions etc. but half a day?
I've been in pain and had endo symptoms for 6 years now, am on my fourth treatment for it (Mirena) and they found I have adenomyosis in my womb when I had an MRI scan. The Mirena was put in at the end of June and I've had no bleeding and there is no difference in the pain. Out of the blue my consultant decided he wants to do a diagnostic lap - a year after I was refused it for being too overweight. I did lose some weight but now I've put it back on so I don't understand why now it's ok for me to have one. I will mention it to the nurse to get her opinion.
How long has everyone's pre-op lasted? Did they just ask questions and do a blood test? I hope they aren't going to try an internal exam - they tried to do an internal last Monday and they had to stop as it hurt so much.
