🎗💉Endometriosis & pre-surgery questions 💉🎗
🛑 I would love to tell you that before my surgeries I was well-read, knowledgeable, confident and went it my pre-op appointment with all of the above questions but sadly that’s not the case!
😥 In fact I was flustered, worried about missing work and wanted to speed through the meeting to get back to the office. Hindsight, I’m literally screaming at myself- why the f did I miss out on that opportunity?!!!
💊 I’ve talked about this before, but in all honesty I did feel like surgery was the answer to all my problems, I also had a huge amount of faith in medical professionals (I still do) and thought the outcome of surgery would be all rainbows and unicorns.
🥼 Like for many, it wasn’t. Positives that came out of this though was the I spent my recovery time geeking up. Article after article, blog after blog, book after book- I wanted to know it all! ~
💉 Since then I’ve been back to my surgeon and doctor, feeding them with question upon question. I feel confident that I know exactly what went in my body but definitely should have known this before surgery! ~
💛 Don’t be like me. Ask the questions, again and again and do not feel embarrassed or ashamed. I have put together a set of questions to start you off. Write them down, screenshot, print them off- just bloody well ask them!💛
