I don't know if anyone out there knows what I am talking about. I had a laparoscopy done on Sept.9th 2008 but only started my period on Oct.4th! I was told that it was all normal, that it could start right away or too late and I worried for nothing. But, after laparoscopy I did not recover in 3-5 days like they tell everybody, but had abdominal and pelvic pain every day. The Doctor said that my surgery went well, no complications, biopsy came back negative and there is no need to worry about anything because the cyst was removed beautifully. Then why am I still in pain??? Why am I still having my period (12th day, though not heavy, just spots, but it is there!) , why am I feeling fullness in my stomach, why am I bloated, having abdominal stabbing pain, and finally such a discomfort in my pelvis. When I called and explained everything, I was told that it was not her area of practice and I need to go to the stomach specialist. When I went there, the stomach specialist said that there could be some damage done inside during surgery and I need to have the abdominal and pelvis cat scan done to see what was going on. Finally I called my OBGYN again and she sent me there. I haven't gone yet, but I really am getting tired, angry and frustrated. When I first discovered that there was a cyst, I only knew it from my ultrasound report, I had no pain, no bloating, no fullness, I felt great. As a matter of fact, I have never had surgeries in my life and never been to the hospitals in my life! Now, a month later after laparoscopy, I have every possible sign of every possible sickness that a woman can experience, and that is making my life pretty ugly. Who knows what this might be and why, and how can I make my OBGYN to understand, to pay more attention to me when it feels like she is just washing her hands off " I did good, the report is good, you should be good". Or better yet, she said that there might be a new cyst developed in 3 weeks, but they did nothing wrong, that it's all new situation now. But I felt like this since I left the hospital, when could that possibly start to develop? On my way home from the hospital? To go through that all over again? It feels like a bad dream. I wish I never had laparoscopy.
