this thursday i am to have an exploratory laparoscopy and histeroscopy for endometriosis and scar tissue. Depending on whats found-they have lisik ablation and dialiation and curratage planned. I have never had any invasive tests or surgerys done. im afarid something will go wrong. The dr. said it would feel like he stabbed me with a pencil for a few days. I wish he would have lied or kept quiet instead. I need to have it done but cant calm down now. I know too many people with severe and life threatening complications after getting "simple" procedures done. PLEASE- if you or someone you know has had these procedures, tell me your experience. I have to be functional to care for my kids, if its really that bad then i think i need to look at other options, if not- then i really need to follow through. i am so scared, the pap smear alone was painfull enough to draw tears today. what should i do?
