I had my lap 12 days ago and the first week I was feeling better each day from the op and effect of anesthetic. My scars seem to be healing well and was feeling hopeful that as the nurse thought they'd burnt away some endo that I would get a break from all the constant pains!
So then Friday I started getting strong pains and realised that was period pain kicking in and came on Saturday. The pain seemed worse than normal but with everything probably still healing I dosed myself up on lots of codeine turned into a zombie for 3 days but pain was manageable. So I then thought great finally some relief coming but no the aching and stabbing pains are still there even though my period only lasted 3 days the pain is still strong and my hip and thigh pain is bad. I've even now got pains in my groin which feels like electric shocks shooting down into my inner and top of thigh. I normally only get it on outer side which is constant pain.
So my question is, is it normal for a lap to make pains worse and is the groin pain from maybe being in a strange position during op? I've just asked doctors for more codeine but can only take it at home not work as I'm too spaced out ! I was told to take paracetamol and ibrubrofen constantly but although after op it helped now doesn't seem to do anything.
I've got follow up appointment in May so just need to cope till then but is this normal? Feeling bit fed up today just want to wake up and feel better again.
