Back From My Laparoscopy...No Endo Found But Adhesion!

Well, I just got home from my laparoscopy. I am a little groggy so forgive me if I sound a little off. The good news is, no endometriosis was found anywhere! So I will not have to worry about not taking estrogen replacement. What a relief! Amazing that none was found considering it was left all over in there when my reproductive organs were removed, and I was started on hrt right away. There is a slight possibility that there is still microscopic endo that was not seen, but for now I am not going to worry about it. At least there was no major growth.

However, the surgeon did find a huge angry adhesion that was attached from my sigmoid colon to the top of my vaginal cuff, which could very well explain the pain I was experiencing just above my pubic bone and the painful bowel movements and bloating. Not to mention the low back discomfort. She did remove it but can't guarentee that it won't come back. So at least one source of my pain was found. Time will tell if this is the answer to a lot of my pelvic pain and if the relief is permanent.

I still don't understand why I have had so much bladder pain and pressure, but there are still many possibiliies to check into should the pain continue after I heal. For now I am just so happy that no more major endometriosis was found!

I can't believe how little pain I am feeling. Of course it is still early, and I am doped up on Lortabs and IbProfen, but this surgery was a cakewalk compared to my hysterectomy! I will definitely stay on top of my pain med schedule though and rest for the coming week. I was lucky to get in right away (I was the first case). I had to be there at 6am and was wheeled into surgery at 8am. The surgery took about an hour, and I was back in my room by 10am. The nurses were wonderful this time around and I felt treated so much better than with my hysterectomy, so for that I am pleased. My doc also came and talked to me before I left. My only complication was when they put the iv in my left arm, my vein collapsed (painful!) so they had to take it out and try another area. Not fun! Otherwise everything went smoothly.

Also, a few days ago I was started on Zoloft for depression and stopped the Biest I had been taking. Within one day I felt like I had more energy and no more fever. My body aches went down considerably and I have had very few hot flashes. I wonder how much the Biest was contributing to how awful I was feeling. Maybe it was the estriol in it or something in the cream base? I am now trying a small dose of Vivelle Dot (started yesterday...was going to wait but my headaches were getting worse again so I gave in and put it on...headaches better today). Time will tell if this helps more or not. The Zoloft is causing some slight nausea for the first few hours after I take it, but hopefully this will subside as my body gets used to it. So for now things are looking up some. I will keep you all posted on any new developments! Thanks again everyone for all your support and encouragement! I feel better that I went ahead and had this laparscopy afterall. More later!

Naturebound, you must be so relieved that no endo was found. I am very happy for you. I hope the release of the adhesion provides you with some relief.

Naturebound, your surgical report sounds great--I am very glad! For the next few days, it might be helpful to walk around a little (indoors) everyday. After my adhesion surgery, the doctor told me to do a lot of indoor walking but not to strain myself. I think it's good for the bowel. I think the bowel gets a little traumatized from all the handling or maybe it's sluggish from the anesthesia. I don't have a big home so I just walked back-and-forth between rooms. I'm glad the surgery is over, and I hope you feel better and better every day.

Glad to hear!

I am so happy for you that no endo was found. I was full of adhesions so I know how you feel. My surgery was 8/16/06 and I am feeling great. Like the previous post said, walking helped me alot. Best wishes!
