I had the Mirena IUD inserted six weeks ago and laparoscopic endometriosis and ovarian cyst removal ten days ago. I am 26, healthy and fit, but I have been bleeding since I had the IUD inserted. The bleeding got a bit heavier after my surgery but I feel almost back to normal already. I was only on painkillers for two days, though the endo was all over my ovaries, bladder and colon. I notice that the bleeding gets significantly heavier on days when I have been more active (taking my dog to the park, lots of walking, etc.) though I feel fine. I'm just wondering when this bleeding will stop.
I also have a very physically demanding job and am wondering, if I feel alright, can I get back to work (treeplanting) a month after my surgery? I know there are risks, but even just ten days out of surgery, I'm feeling pretty much back to normal.
