So i’m having some exploratory surgery at the end of January.
They’re looking for endometriosis, cysts or some other kind of gynalogical issue. I was feeling good about it, looking forward to getting some answers ect. i’d read the stuff they had given me to read and i wasn’t worried…….until today.
I had my pre op appointment and the nurse was very negative about my recovery time and how much pain i would experience when i told her i had MS (she hadn’t bothered to read my file so we didnt get off to a good start).
I get neuropathic pain a lot and she seemed to think this meant i would experience more pain post op than a “normal” patient. She also said i had a higher risk of developing an infection as i was immuno comprimised and that my recovery may take longer.
Now i take what she said with a pinch of salt as my surgeon never mentioned any of this during our initial consultation.
However now im a little nervous so i was wondering if any of the ladies have had endometriosis treated with surgery and can let let me know how they found it???
