Endo is a pain in the rear to deal with. I've had it removed now two times. First time back in 2010 removed an 2 months later got pregnant. I've also had a hysteroscopy done.

This time around just a few weeks ago I had a diagnostic d&c,hysteroscopy,laparoscopy & a HSG. This time they found stage 1 again of endo plus one little fibriod. It wasn't removed due to will not cause issues but the endo was removed an I was very sore for a few days.

First time I only had 2 little incision no soreness but this time had 3 incisions an very sore. I'll say both times I had to have pain meds.

A woman can have very little endo an not have no pain or can have very little an have tons of pain. Some women can have stage 4 an have no pain or could have tons of pain. Each woman is different.

First time I had endo I didn't know I had it until couldn't get pregnant for almost 11years. This time around had lots of pain an have very little. Remember endo keeps coming back it never stops. I hate it with all my heart.

When you have a lap done you will be put to sleep an a tube down the throat but you will not know when they do it as your a sleep.

Now we're ttc once again since had my surgeries done a few weeks ago. Hope can get a BFP very soon.

In June I had a 4 cm cyst removed, it was so intwined in my left ovary they had to remove half of the ovary. They check both of my tubes and they were clear. The gyno doesn't see any reason why I can't get pregs on my own. ( I was shocked too!) I still have lots of endo in there.

It's a very common surgery. It wasn't my favourite day in life, but you get through it! I will say the crappiest part of the whole surgery was the trapped gas in my stomach (C02), it felt like I had to fart so bad but wouldn't come out (haha, sorry)

Good luck, girl!

Thank you for posting that! I was just sitting here thinking about my surgery on wednesday and how nervous I am going to be and what they might find. Did you already now that cyst was there..... before the surgery?

Np

I was sooo nervous going in, it's so normal to be nervous, you're human! I had a scan done a few months ago thinking there was a problem with my urinary tract b/c of frequent infections (there didn't end up being a problem) and they tech saw a large golf sized cyst sitting on my ovary. I freaked like a crazy person thinking it was the end of the world etc. etc., but I overreacted... as per usual!

Do you know if you have a cyst? You and I are very lucky to be able to have the surgery and are able to see what is actually going on in there. A lot of women have cysts burst and apparently it's a pain worst than child birth! Or, women will try to have kids for years and years and turns out their fallopian tubes are blocked from so much endo that hey need to be surgically opened.

You are probably having some sort of pre-surgical blood work to make sure your body can handle the anesthetic, hence- you'll be fine and be able to have lots of babies! I'm the same age as you, we're in our prime baby making years!

Don't sweat it, seriously.. I'm the biggest baby on the planet and I made it lol

Good luck! xxx

I know this is easier said than done, but don't be scared. At this point you can't change whatever they will find and the recovery is not bad at all. The only thing that hurt was coughing or sneezing after. Try both very carefully! Lol. My incisions were so small and only a little sore. But everything healed fairly quickly. Good luck!!!

I just got out a little while ago and actually feel pretty good except when I stand and for the shooting pains trying to come up my shoulder ( gas trying to escape, I guess). They found a tiny bit of endo on my bladder and removed it. The Dr. said they don't understand why but even the tiniest bit of endo can cause infertility. So in 7 days I am clear for baby dancing! How was yours? Are you feeling okay?

That's great to hear. I hope you get your BFP right away.

I had no shoulder pain luckily, but my incisions are sore. They did not find endometriosis, but the doctor said my ovaries had lots of cysts and were filled with fluid, o she drained them. I can't have sex for 2 weeks. She said she would talk about medication options at my follow-up.
