    today i had my tube removed cos i had a Ectopic pregnancy and i wondered if anyone could help me as i was very destressed after the op i discharged myself about an hour after without asking any quiestions. Silly i know but i was not thinking straight.

    they done it via laparoscopy and it is very painfull, do i need to adviod heavy lefting ect?? are there anythings i should not or should be doing?

    also i am still having a lot of sholder pain when breathing is this normal?

    if anyone has any advice it would help me loads as today happened in such a rush and shock i know nothing.

    Thanks

    i am more plumstead near herbert road u know it where r u?

    they did not say any reason it all happened very quick from having a scan seeing all the blood and clots in my belly n the op then i just left :(

    it was QE u know it i guess i just had nurses saying to each other why is she so upset cos i was crying i knew i could not stay there but wish i had asked stuff first, but i lost a baby at 20 weeks in jan so it was all too much for me.

    what is PID and how does that effect you if u dont mind me asking x

    Check out the Ectopic Pregnancy Trust website. Helped me.
    You must not do heavy lifting. I can't remember the shoulder pain after sorry, only before.
    Lots of pain at the beginning but get easier.
    The shock is so common as all happens so fast before you can even take it in.
    Talk to people about feelings. xx:hugs:
