but first a quick recap:
I had my lap done on March 8th. Was bribbed into eating toast in order to be discharged. Went home, had severe swelling blah blah blah - I'm sure many of you are familiar with all the "joys".
A week later I still had major pain and swelling, my stitches were taken out and the dr who did the surgery wouldn't even tell me where the endo was located, and just kept feeding me pills.
I spent a lovely weekend in the ER - had an ultrasound done, which came back "normal" - I tried to read the notes but the nurse came back too quick! Ended up with severe bruising from the IV...
I found out yesterday that the endo was located on my left ovary and had adhered my bowel to my pelvic wall.
Now to my question:
I never had ANY bleeding at all from the lap. I've been on the depo shot for 3yrs, and am getting my next one tomorrow (last day since the last one for me to get it) - but I've been bleeding consistently since April 1st (haha, wasnt that a lovely mood killer!)... it hasn't been heavy and has just recently started showing up on pantyliners but it doesn't show signs at all of getting any lighter.
Is this something I should be worried about?
I've been having EXTREME STABBING pain in my left ovary - and I take vicodin ES for my head, and valium 3x/day and it's not helping with this. It almost feels like the incision isn't healed (which seems ridiculous) and that I have something stabbing into my ovary.
Should I get a second opinion?
