Prep for/Recovery from 1st Laparoscopic Surgery

Hello Everyone,

I've read through a few threads regarding this already (thank you all for so much useful information) but wondered if anyone had any experience specifically with using activated charcoal capsules to help better absorb the gas in the first week of recovery? I saw this mentioned as hugely helpful in a few youtube videos and blogs. Any other updated recovery tips, etc. are greatly appreciated, as well!

Thank you ALL in advance and wishing us all… read more

I don't know about the charcoal helping pain but it could definitely block absorption of oral pain meds.

Estrogen Levels after endometriosis surgery

So, I am 8 weeKS post op from my surgery to have surgical resection of endometriosis. And this surgery was for endo that returned 15 mths POST supracervical hysterectomy.

Endometriosis in my lung. Anyone else?

I had a cancerous tumour removed from my lung 9 years ago since then I have started to develop pain in that area just before my period and during my period every month. Doctors think that the endometriosis has moved into my lung. Does anyone else have this? It’s apparently rare.

Laproscopy

I am having an exploratory lap in a couple of weeks. I am wondering if any of you ladies had a pelvic exam or some kind of exam before your lap. I find it strange bc the Mayo Clinic never put a finger on me or checked anything, not even weighed me. They are going by my history of reports & the ct scans that they took there. I am just curious about this. Any feed back would be helpful. The dr. never even looked at my stomach. I notice you can't see my belly button. I wonder if it is from too many… read more
