(I lurk here a lot, posted once or twice!)

Quick intro, My name's Lindsey, I'm married to Eric, and we have a 3 year old son, Caiden. We have been TTC #2 since September 2008.

I was diagnosed with Endometriosis in august, and added PCOS to that list at my last appointment on Dec. 2nd. They decided laparoscopy to remove my endo and cysts would be the best route for now, and then clomid the next cycle.

I had an HSG done in November with clear results, and my baseline showed a bunch of follies (and a few cysts). So this is frustrating.

January 4th I go in for my pre-op exam to make sure I am healthy enough. And then they go over the risks, paperwork and details.

January 5th at 12:30pm is my surgery, but I will be there at 10:00. Is it lame that I'm upset I have to fast through breakfast and lunch?! Ughhhhh. I'm sure I'll live though.

So, unless I get my BFP, this is whats happening!

Anyone had a Lap done before? How was it?

I am no help to you, as I haven't had a lap. But I know there are quite a few ladies that will be able to jump in and give you some pointers. Good luck with your procedure. I hope that you get your BFP soon!!

They are a breeze! I've had two laps, and really, they are not bad at all. I understand being anxious--but you will be fine!

I had my first lap (to check for poss. endo, none found) in 2001. My second lap was just this past October (all clear) and---for what it's worth, I got pregnant the month after each lap. So who knows, maybe it will give you a boost

My lap. this past month was in the early afternoon, and it was a pain not having anytrhing to eat or drink after midnight. I was STARVING when I woke up!

The one thing I had an issue was---and there is not much you can DO for this, but just to be prepared---was shoulder pain in the days after. It was worse than the pain with my incisions, which was very minimal. The shoulder pain is b/c of gas/air making its way upwards through your body, pretty common after this type of procedure. I had to sleep at an angle, propped up on pillows for two nights. That really helped alleviate the pressure/pain feeling.

I don't mean to scare you, and it's not that bad---but it is def. something you should be prepared for. The more you walk around after surgery, the better, too...

I would say the day after my lap I was at about 75%, the next day at 80% and I was probably back to normal within 3-4 days.
