This Monday, I went in for a laparoscopy, hysteroscopy, tube flush / dye test, and pap smear. I was particularly excited about getting the pap smear done while under a general anaesthetic!
Basically, they found endometriosis down in the left corner of my pelvis, which had caused a little scarring. I was in quite a bit of pain when I woke up, so obviously they had to work a bit to get rid of it. One thing they didn’t tell me, was that the dye for the tube flush / test was bright bright blue, so when I stood up to get changed I felt like I had suddenly turned into a bleeding Avatar! Be warned ladies – expect some funny colours to come out of you if you have that particular procedure done lol 😀
Aside from that my recovery has been as good as can be expected when you have 3 holes in your belly 🙂 My appetite was very low initially so it has taken a while for my bowels to get working between not eating much and of course side effects from the pain killers. I’m now just back to paracetamol and ibuprofen for pain relief, which I’m happy about because the oxycodone worked well but made me drowsy, dizzy and gave me some pretty trippy dreams (highly entertaining 😀 )!
Now, we wait until our follow up appointment with our specialist in just under 2 weeks 🙂
