    I was due this but it was changed to a hysteroscopy, D&C and getting the coil.Laparascopy is by far less scary than it looks. A girl from work had it and was left with a tiny scar under her belly button that you can't even see now. She was up walking about and in visiting us the next day. I can only go on the hysteroscopy for feeling, but that was only like really heavy cramps afterwards, yeah painful, but nothing we can't handle :D Not wanting to scare you or sugar coat it, thats just the truth. Good luck :D

    Depends on the person & the hospital. I've seen a couple of diff stories about laps.

    I had mine & I was cut above my fairy & in my belly button. Now I was always very sensitive inside my belly button & above my fairy is where my skin bends when I sit, get up etc. So I found after very hard & quite painful for a handful of days. I would say over all its not too bad but the first time I guess is scarey in mind too ... I hated going under & the hospital ceiling on the way in was filthy LOL

    Seen some girls mention one cut - Yvanne somewhere to the side I think she said (hope you don't mind me mentioing you Yvanne).

    Just the honest reply from me hun

    Haha Wobs...I got left in the hall for ages, was told when i arrived that I wasn't allowed to get into bed as someone else might need it, and only was allowed to get in (to the same bed they didnt need after all) when i was being taken down to theatre...again to sit in the hall. How do ceilings get so mucky in there?

    I work in the day surgery unit and we do Lap's as a day case here, and they do it with 2 incisions. As its key hole surgery the wound are very small!

    You may feel uncomfortable for the rest of the day as they fill your belly up with air to get a better view, therefore trapped and painful wind can sometimes be a problem afterwards. Most woman who have it done feel a bit achey and crampy for the next few days and most are advised to take a week off work.

    hope that helps a bit !

    Wishing you all the best

    Hello Everyone,

    Thought I would leave a quick update after my pre-admin appointment today for my laparoscopy, which scared the s*** out of me.

    Everything health wise is fine apart from the MINOR fact that I have to lose 18lbs in the next 8 weeks as a precaution ! easy peasy NOT! OH then came home and I went to work. I then come home to steak, HOME MADE CHIPS and sweetcorn !! I am on a diet I say.....

    To which I get the usually response from a man... your so ungrateful !

    Oh dear...

    Well they say I will get my appointment date over next 2-3 months, while the specialist I saw 4 weeks ago told me 2 weeks after pre-admin appt..... Totally confused now then (nothing new there lol).

    Hope everyone is ok.

    Take care xx:hugs:

    Good luck Donna not easy loosing 18lb in that period of time so if goal is not reached I can't see why they shoudl be harsh about it. Do your best without starving yourself x x


    Much luck hun for your coming appointments x x
