I know I had a laparoscopy before but I had no difficulties with it; this one nothing but issues 😔
I had spotting and cramping and heavy bleeding which my GP says was my period; it wasn’t due till Saturday but came Wednesday.
My wound on my left side is very sore; it turns one of stitches is hidden underneath my scab and this has caused a ragging infection; I have been issued flucloxacillin 500mg x4 daily for one whole week; I have been told to keep an close eye on it and if it’s still red and weepy to come back ASAP.
I have had horrendous back pain ( not a normal endo symptom for me) followed by contractions in my uterus and particularly in my lower side where my endometriosis was treated and some was left due to location ; literally I cannot do anything but breathe through them; it’s like I’m giving birth oh the irony 🤦🏼♀️ eventually I had a gap and could swallow some strong co-codamol ( with my endo I live on this stuff 🤦🏼♀️) It has now eased up.
Has anyone else had similar issues after a laparoscopy?
I was so positive about the future now I feel a bit meh.. sorry for the self pity post.
Anyone about to undergo a laparoscopy; please don’t let my experience put you off; my first laparoscopy was easy. xoxo
The scab has come off and there were two stitches behind it so nurse practitioner was spot on. The last time I had to have them removed this time I got a ragging infection; the next lap i have I’m insisting on non dissolvable stitches with the issues I’ve had with these 🙄 maybe I’ve just been unlucky but taking no chances next time 🤔 xoxo hopefully will now start to feel much better 😊
