Has Anyone Had A Seriously Impossible Time Getting A Laparoscopy?

What Should I Expect 2 Months Post Endo Surgery?

What Should I Expect 2 Months Post Endo Surgery?

I had surgery in November for endometriosis. The doctor said I didn’t have a lot to take out but there was some. I have just started feeling pain during my ovulation week and I was wondering if that was normal. I thought after surgery I wouldn’t have any more pain. Thanks in advance!
