I had my diagnostic laparoscopy on Friday. Everything went well and I'm at home recovering. Hubs is taking good care of me. So is the dog.
The doctor found one spot of endometriosis and removed it. There was an ovarian cyst on my right ovary that was drained. She also found a hematoma somewhere in there too and took care of it. (Do yourself a favor and don't google this.) Unfortunately I didn't get to talk to the doctor after the procedure, so everything I know is what she told hubs (and sometimes he's not so great with details). Overall, it seems like everything went like it was supposed to, but I'll find out more details at my follow-up appointment in two weeks.
Recovery has been a bit slower than expected, though I think this is probably because this was my first surgery of any kind, and I had unreasonable expectations for myself. I'm trying really hard to not overdo it. I think I'll wait at least another day or two before attempting driving. Lifting things is going to take a bit longer. I'm glad that I have the whole week off of work and that we already decided not to travel for Thanksgiving.
I really appreciate all of the emails, comments and texts with well wishes. It really meant a lot to know that my tribe was thinking about me.
