Laparoscopy experience July 2017
I just had my laparoscopy done yesterday and thought to share my experience here.
This was my first surgery experience and I was really nervous. It was booked for 2pm and I was taken to theatre about 2:40(i was told that I am second in a list). The very stressful part for me was that I was afraid of anesthesia, I have no idea why. But the medical staff, doctor and anesthetist, all were so good and kind to me that they quickly put me to sleep. I woke up in recovery room with oxygen mask on and the nurse asked me if I want some water. I was very sleepy, thirsty and that was about 4pm already
I was connected to some machines which were measuring my heart beat and the blood pressure. Then the doctor came and said that nothing they found, no endometriosis, nothing at all, and I started to cry. As I was sure that my painfull intercourse, heavy and painful periods, and infertility is the reason of endo.
But then I fall a sleep again as I was very tired after general anesthetic. As I was too weak they suggested to stay overnight and I was descharged next day in the morning.
I was not in a much pain, or suffering a lot I should admit. And I didn't take any painkillers so far. I can feel these two incisions the did, but it's not that bad.
I am still very tired and weak as it's just second day after surgery, but overall I can't say that this was very painfull and scary surgery which you should worry about, take it easy.
Having said that I should also mention that in my case the laparoscopy was more as a diagnostic as they haven't done anything else to me, besides my tubes were flashed with dye.
Hope this will be useful for someone who is going to have the laparoscopy, and if you have any questions please let me know😊
