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.
That sounds promising for you! At least we can identify what our problems are now. I think that not knowing, is the worst. My incisions are a little sore now that the pain meds are wearing off. I have two on my left side and one in the belly button. Throat is a tiny bit sore too but I pictured it being so much worse. Did you have some bleeding? My period is due soon so I thought that was it but it stopped now. Major to both of us

Yes, I completely agree - I didn't know what was wrong with my body, and it was driving me insane! I knew there was something wrong, but no one could give me a straight answer. Some doctors told me there was nothing wrong at all.

I've been bleeding since September, so yes, I did have bleeding yesterday. However, it's almost completely stopped today. I also have three incisions: one in my navel, one on the left, and one above my pubic area. Did they give you stitches or Steri-strips or glue to keep them shut? My throat is super sore, and sounds very scratchy when I talk.

I've been using ice packs to try and keep the swelling down on my belly. Perhaps that will help with your pain, too. Are you taking any pain medications at home?

I think they just used glue under my bandages, the nurse said I can take them off in the shower tomorrow. And I do sound like I smoked 3 packs of cigarettes today. They did give me percocet and I don't want to take them but I think I may have to tonight. I know this is TMI but I'm passing tiny clots so if its still happening tomorrow I might give them a call just to be safe.

No such thing as TMI in my book, hun. Definitely call if you are worried. They are there to help you. They told me that I should call if I soak a pad an hour, or if the bleeding goes back to bright red. It's pink at the moment. Are your clots dark red?

I only took one Percocet today, but I might have to take another. The Motrin just isn't cutting it, especially when I walk, and I normally have a high tolerance for pain.

Just giving you a head's up, I tried to eat soup and drink Gatorade when I got home yesterday, and it tasted DISGUSTING. Food is only just now beginning to taste palpable again.

The clots are reddish but the blood is pink. They had to give me meds for the nausea so I have been eating crackers..... which I can't taste yet but maybe tomorrow.....

Ohhhh, I tried to eat a cracker yesterday, but it was sooo disgusting and dried up every bit of saliva in my mouth. I almost choked, then cried because it hurt to cough. Lol.
