How soon did you begin working out after Laparoscopy?

My doc told me I can begin working out 2 weeks post op so I did and I feel a little funky after , is it too soon? I hate this disease and all of the emotional ups and downs and decisions that have to be made :( Just having a bad day , bad stomach pains and I can still feel ovulation after the lap surgery I thought that would be gone.

Abdominal wall endo mass

I’ve recently been diagnosed with an Endometrioma mass growing into my stomach muscles in my lower abdominal area near a 5 year old c section scar. It was originally diagnosed as an incisional hernia however following many scans (privately thankfully) I was referred to a plastic surgeon and then referred again to an endo specialist.

Anyone have issues with Hypothyroidism as well as the Endo

To some extent my endo is managed (it's still a work in progress). But, for several months I have been extremely tired, crazy mood swings from depression to constant anxiety. My hands are dry and my fair is very brittle. Back in '15 I had my blood work… read more

Please describe your bad back pain & migraine to me.

I've suffered from excruciating back pain and migraine headaches (together, same time!) for years now, without any good expalination. Found out I have Endo in 2013, and now I find out they could be related. Looking to compare pain so I can address this in my next appointment. Thank you!

pelvic floor pain after surgery

Hi, I had a hysterectomy for endo over the summer. I'm now experiencing sharp pains in my vagina mostly after exercising. I think it might be pelvic floor pain? Has anyone had any experience with this issue after surgery?
