I'm getting a lap!!! :D

Postby Annabelle_M » Wed Mar 30, 2011 5:31 pm

It's been over 10 years since my last one that diagnosed me with the dreadful endometriosis behind my uterus. I begged my new RE to do it and he agreed!! I want to know what stage I have, if it has spread or grown and what my fertility future is!

What can I expect from this procedure? I really cannot remember as I was only about 15/16. At that time, I do remember the dr telling me I needed to have kids before I'm 30. :( Thanks! Also did you have to take bcp or anything before the lapo?

I had to take a med to "freeze" my cycle where it was but that was it. The lap itself wasnt bad. The worst part to me was the gas pain. They use gas too fill up your belly so they can see better. I had terrible chest pains anytime I had to sit up or walk. Good Luck!!

Thank you for responding!! I will be calling them today to see if they have date booked yet. I don't want to waste too many cycles. :S

I didn't have to take anything for either of my laps. I just had to wait one cycle afterward to start trying again.

Like nearly everyone else said the gas pain is the worst. I tried not to lay completely flat afterward and still the gas pain was terrible!

Good luck to you!

Thank you. I think the reason I need to take bcp is because the RE only gets OR time once a month and it needs to line up with my cycles.
