Lap Surgery Recovery & Endometriosis
Sun, 09-23-2012 - 11:19pm

Hey ladies.

I'm new, my name is Kat & I'm 27. I just experienced my first lap surgery (and first surgery period) just two days ago. I've got two weeks for recovery time due to some lucky timing with my job so I've got some time to not only recoop physically but also psychologicaly as I'm still trying to wrap my mind around the diagnosis. I haven't had my follow up yet with my gyno about what this all means, but I'm hoping that I can talk to some supportive women who've either been through it themselves or know something about the whole idea.

I've read up & talked with others about endometriosis but I'm still hungry for support, knowledge & comfort. I am worried about fertility & everything but I keep in the back of my mind that that is the whole reason we went ahead with this in the first place & that we're moving in the right direction.

Has anyone been through this surgery? How was recovery? What about anyone who's experienced endometriosis? I'm really in need of some support & finding someone who understands/empathizes with it all.

Thanks ladies.

Hi there!! Sounds like you've been through a lot. I hope your recovery is going quickly and you feel back to your old self soon.

I don't have any personal experience with Endo either. Hopefully some ladies will come out and post their experiences.
