    Hi. Didnt want to read and run.
    I have had two laps for my ectopics and i bled for around 2 days lightly. I had a dye test done whilst awake an i didnt bleed at all just had period pain style cramps after that. It may differ slightly as you are having both procedures done together but i doubt it. Best of luck and im sure u will be fine xxx

    Hi Ladies - I had a lap & dye done in July. I was "tender" for a few days but nothing unbearable and then when the gas started to dissipate and moved around into my shoulders that was uncomfortable but nothing that is unmanageable.

    I didn't bleed right away but started spotting about 4 days later and then AF showed up in full force a few days after that.

    Recovery may also be longer if you have endo removed etc. I had three very small patches on my left ovary removed that were grade 1. Recovery might be longer if I had more extensive endometriosis.

    All in all I was very worked up for the procedure and it was a piece of cake! Good luck and if you have any questions don't hesitate to PM me.

    What is hydrotubation?

    I had lap and dye at the strat of Nov. I had 2 weeks off work as I have a physical job. I was sore and tender and badly bruised for a bout 4 days after it. Endo was found and removed (only 2 small bits). I had slight spotting for a couple of days and Af arrived at her normal time. I found myself to be incredibly emotional for the two weeks after it and was crying at lots of things. I would ask that if they find endo they remove it while you are having it done. Otherwise (NHS) it is just classed as diagnostic and they leave it for another time. I also had dye test which showed 1 tube blocked (possibly spasm)I would ask in advance whether or not they can insert something to inblock it (there are procedures available) rather than just trying to push dye thru. xx

    The anesthetic is nothing to worry about. It was the coming round from the op that was horrible- the pain relief had worn off. I had 3 shots of morphine before it kicked in, they also had to heat me up- think I was frozen due to the shock of the pain. Anyway they put a fab plastic blanket on me that inflates with air- magic!!!

    I would ask a lot of questions to the surgeon before the op- as after it you feel slightly drunk, lol.

    Good luck. Expect stitches in your belly button and just above pubic bone and possibly bruising and swelling- its normal. Oh and if they give you co codamol it makes you constipated. TBH the pain subsides greatly on the 2nd/3rd day and you cpuld move onto paracetamol. But definitely say to the surgeon before the op that if the find endo can they try and remove it there and then. Otherwise they won't touch it and you may need to have another lap to have it dealt with. xx
