Hi everyone, I am due to have another laparoscopy due to severe pelvic pain and had one previously only six months ago. I am wondering if anyone knows if they'll use the same incisions as last time? Or will they go through different entry points?
Thanks! (From someone who doesnt want to add to the four incisions already on my abdomen hahaha)
Ok, so my surgery date is coming up fast and I just have a few questions. My first question being, how long will it take me to really recover after a laparotomy? Has anyone else had minimal or no pain at all since a laparotomy? Also, was anyone else not able to get pregnant after a laparoscopy, but finally able to conceive after a laparotomy? Please I'd really appreciate some answers.
I got pregnant 2 years after my laproscopy. I fell naturally after following tips from the book ‘It Starts With the Egg’ by Rebecca Fett; 2 days before I was due to start fertility treatment!
Any advice for a laparotomy? I have kissing ovaries and the cysts are too big for laparoscopic surgery. I was wondering if anyone had recommendations for what to take or wear or what to avoid? I’m scheduled for next Monday. Thanks!
My laparotomy was December 2nd and this past month I've been getting little episodes of little sharp jabs. They'll stop for hours and randomly return.
Ever since having my lap a month ago every morning I wake up with moderate bowel pain telling me I need to poop and it goes away straight afterwards. Not too worried about it it's just different for me. Anyone got any ideas?
I think that's normal post surgery. Magnesium and lots of water should help. Remember mornings you are most dehydrated so drinking room temp water (with lemon optional) as soon as you wake up may help
Just recently been diagnosed with endometriosis. I have 2 large systs my consultant says they are the biggest hes seen for years and that they have been there for 5 years plus. Im booked in for a laprotomy just wondered if anyone has had this done and how is the pain after surgery?
Oh thankyou for replying back to me. Cant wait to have opp just not looking foward to the pain afterwards. If you dont mind me asking but how was you cut open? Xx
I had a laparoscopy in April 2015. I was under for about 1 hour and the doctor didn't want to see me after...instead I was seen in mid-may. In which he told me my body didn't allow him to look inside. He tried several times to put the camera in but my stomach kept contracting and at some point he had to give up from trying. He says he's never seen this happen, and said my case was one in a million. Since then my pain is even worse then before. So questions are:
1) has anyone ever had this… read more
Does anyone have a really bad stomachache during the week of their period? I always get them really bad in the morning. Wondering if this is endo related or stress/anxiety related.
I am currently pregnant and considering this option in hopes that a hysterotomy will solve my pain. Any pros/cons or information is helpful!
