I will almost certainly be having lap in several weeks to check out my tubes (my new doctor isn't convinced that they're totally clear) and to see once and for all if I have endometriosis.

The Laparoscopic surgery will be done on a Thursday, and he says I should take Friday off but will likely feel better by Saturday. I've read a slew of different responses online, but not all of these patients were gyn. Anyone had lap to check tubes/endo? How did you feel a few days later? I'm trying to figure out whether to schedule during a busy work week or a slower one.

Thank you!

Definitely plan on taking off work thru Wednesday. Laparoscopic is partly exploratory. They may find more endometriosis than they expected once they get in there. You will have three to four small incisions and may be on pain meds. You may have restrictions like nolifting or bending over. You may have some spotting or period like bleeding after as well. Sounds like your doctor has not given you a complete explanation or had you sign a document called an INFORMED CONSENT. This is required by law. It will list the risks and benefits of your surgery. You should also have gotten a pre op visit when they explain everything to you.  Call the doctors office urgently as you do not have much time, ask for the doctor or nurse, and ask more questions.

TAKE YOUR FATHER BACK TO HIS DOCTOR WHO PERFORMED THE SURGERY IMMEDIATELY. I dont know if his symptoms are related to his surgery or other things. It will require testing and a doctors diagnosis. Dont delay!
