    Default Laparoscopy...HELP

    I only had a lap done 4 days ago.
    So I'm saying HELL NO right now
    Only because I can't see this pain getting any better.
    This was my first Lap and I had endo removed as well as pre-cancer cells and erosion burnt from my cervix, Mirena fitted and cysts removed, I hope I'm feeling better in 2 weeks time lol.

    If you were fine after 2 weeks the previous time you had it done then I would say you should be fine
    Maybe just try out the "Less extreme" rides first and see how you go and 'Work your way up'
    Have fun!

    I have had 4 laps. I was usually bed bound the day after, but after that fine. I just took it easy for a few days after that, but still worked etc.
    Good luck with it all.

    Default Laparoscopy...HELP

    I'm having my second lap in about 2 weeks time. I'm expecting to be back to normal within a week. Last time I was working on a renovation a few days after.

    It will depend on what you get done. I felt very bruised for about 4 weeks and had alot of swelling (my poor bloated belly).
    TBH I wouldnt have been able to get on the rides in my case. Those rides can be very rough and some do have a bar that sits over your belly.
    You might just have to see how you are after surgery and reassess?

    Yes!! Go!!You should be fine unless something goes drastically wrong, which it won't!The only pain I had after my lap was the pain from the gas they pumped into my tummy... It takes a few days for the gas to absorb back into your system and it rises, causing pain or just discomfort.

    Really depends on what they do when they get in there.

    yeah this was my biggest issue last time! i told doc i was going on hols 3 weeks after i didnt mention about the theme parks but he said ill be fine for my holiday and he did say ill be find to go back to work before then so i REALLY REALLY hope im all good the theme parks are the main reason im going (need an adrenaline rush to forget about all this ivf business) the timing is perfect for the op because i will be ready for another FET by the time we get back from our hol so i dont want to be changing the op date esp cos i will more than likely be ok for the rides I REALLY HOPE!!
