Had diagnostic laperoscopy today. Was first on the list and thought fantastic anasthetic won't affect me. Boy oh boy how wrong I was. Woke up and felt awful - arms and legs felt really, really heavy. Felt totally spaced out for hours, was really tearful and made them turn the lights out because I couldn't cope.

Anyway lap discovered that pelvically there isn't a problem but I do have an enlarged gall bladder and now need a liver scan.

My stomach is stinging and sore, the wind pain in my shoulders if I lie down isn't pleasant so I can see myself sleeping sat up tonight.

I had this done when i was 18 and it isn't very pleasant as you know.
What were they investigating if you dont mind me asking?

I went to gynae clinic for prolapse and pain during intercourse. mind you don't know why I didn't cancel it seems that dh and I are splitting and so won't be gettin any nookie anyway.

Can't believe they found a problem gall bladder though.

Sorry to hear that .
Still it's a good job you went if they found a gall bladder problem.

Think they scraped my throat with the airway tube too - feels really sore in one spot, and my mouth is sooooo dry. Have drunk loads but just can't get rid of that dry feeling. ugh
