I had a laparotomy 3 weeks ago to remove an 8 cm endometrioma. It has been a pretty stressful time as up until then I had no idea I had a cyst!! Had got used to the horrible periods! The biggest concern was ovarian cancer but thankfully histology reported that everything was benign. Thank God.
Anyway, I ended up having a laparotomy instead of a laparoscopy as it was a little trickier to get at than first thought. I had been doing brilliantly. Yes, it's not a particularly nice operation but I was coping very well and didn't really feel the need for painkillers even! That was 2 weeks post op.
This past week I haven't been too good I ended up being taken in to hospital ( a different one) with vomiting, low bp, a little pain last weekend. I only vomited once, I think because I had had recent surgery they wanted to be on the safe side. I stayed for 3 days, was on a drip, had an X-ray etc. All blood tests etc came back clear. The x ray showed gas in my stomach which is to be expected. The Dr said this could cause sickness.
I would like to hear if any of you have experienced similar? Felt good and then went downhill?! I do feel quite nauseous since this episode and bm aren't quite what they should be (sorry!) I have my post op meeting next week so will know more then but in the meantime, any advice?!'
Thanks for reading

Forgot to mention, I also have a bruised feeling at the base of my back. It hurts if I lean forward. You can't see anything, it's just a little sore. Normal?!!
