I recently (8/7/12) had a Laparoscopy done due to continues tugging and pulling pain/discomfort in my lower abdominal area ans painful intercorse. I had been having this discomfort for 2-3 years. My doctor finally listened to me and scheduled for surgery. My doctor advised me that she saw 3 black spots (2 on my wall and 1 one an overy), a few webs of endo and adhesions. She advised that she broke the webs up and the adhesions, and burned the black spots off. The second week after my surgery I started to get the tugging/pulling feeling again. On my post-opp i informed her of this and she said to take BC and that should help but she doesnt recommend going back in for surgery.

My question is, should i still be having this discomfort after the surgery? I would think I shouldnt be because she said that she took care of it.

Your time and answers are much approcated.

I had my lap back in 2008, and I had read that it can take a few weeks to heal. A month after surgery I was still in significant pain. My doc asked me to give it a while longer, and 2 months after I had nearly no pain. So I would give it a few more weeks, and hopefully you'll be feeling better.
