... endo and see what stage i'm at. Can anyone share their experiences post op?What should i expect?I'm pretty nervous but possitive that something is finally been done and hoping it will relieve some of the pain.Any advice welcome?Thanks
I haven't had surgery for endo but have had laproscopic surgery and can tell you it isn't really that bad. The incisions are small and therefore the pain is minimal from them. Of couse it is going to depend on how extensive the endometriosis is, but you should be up and feeling chipper in a few days.
You are in my prayers honey and I'll be checkin' on ya,
Just wanted to say I am of No help but You are in my thoughts and prayers and I will be thinking about you, It and going to be anticipating hearing that you have this over and are starting to feel much better!!! please take care when you are up to it (then you let us know)
Hello Puckiemull! I am so happy to hear that you are finally getting your surgery. Laproscopy is less invasive than other types of abdominal surgery . Y ou will be under anesthesia during the whole procedure. After surgery you will have some pain but the doctor usually has the nurse give you medication as soon as you return to your room. If it does not control your pain, please tell the nurse so that your surgeon can increase the dose or give you another medication. You may need to use a breathing device so that your oxygen levels can be stabilized. A nurse from the anesthesia will come and assist you with this if it is needed. I worked as an operating nurse in my earlier years of nursing. I saw very few patients who had complications from the surgery. If they had any, they were mild. You may have a couple of small incisions since the surgeon uses the laproscope to perform the surgery. Recovery time usually takes about a week depending on the patient.
It is important that you refrain from trying to do too much the first few days following your surgery. Most laproscopic surgery can be performed in day surgery unless the surgeon decides you need to stay in the hospital overnight. I really wish you the best and I hope your surgery goes well. Let me know when they have decided on your follow up treatment. Sweetie Pie
Hi Puckie, Try not to worry too much..I had laprascopy in Oct. 2010, for ovary cysts and they found out I had stage 3 Endometriosis too. Fortunately, the adhesions were localized to common areas, ovaries, bladder etc. So they tried to get as much as they could find. I had a little more pain on my left side after b/c of the big cyst I had there, but I was up walking around the house a few hours after the operation.I felt like my belly was sore, but it was a "better "different kind of pain than the chronic cyst was.. I took off 12 days, because I have a physically active job, but I felt like I could've gone back after a week.. The incisions were intitally only about 1/2 inch each one.They are amazingly quick to heal too. Dont be scared, just think how much better you'll feel after it's done. Its changed my quality of life.. Hope this helps you as much! I 'll be thinking of you! :)
Just letting you all know i had laparoscopy on sat and they lasered all the endo.Thats all i know,i was'nt told much else as my gyne was fitting me in between his own patients that day.I've to go back to see him in2/4weeks,i am in an awful amount of pain,so far nothing is better and i'm actually sorry i went through with the surgery,its been 5days and no let up with pain,i can bearly walk from room to room,cannot sit stand lie down,it takes so much to get comfortable and even at that it dont last long.I'm hoping and trying to think possitive that it will be worth it in the long run,its just hard to see at the moment,but hopefully with time.
Dont mean to go on but just wondered if anyone had similar effects after laparoscopy?I'm none the wiser on how much work he had to do just have to wait to see him to get full info.
Also will i have to go get stitches out or are they disolvable?Was'nt told that either but will be going to the doc tomorrow to see can i get anything to relief the pain.Any and all comments welcome,
Thank you all
I've had a lap but not for the endo, but it's basically the same thing.
The worst part was the gas they fill your abdomen up with. It made me sore for 5 days especially in my shoulders, somedays it hurt to breathe. The incisions weren't painful at all.
Good luck I hope it helps!
