I am having a lot of discharge after having a laparoscopy for endometriosis: Advice?

Monday morning, I had a laparoscopy for endometriosis. First surgery. I am having a lot of discharge down below as I can feel it coming out… My stomach is still hurting really bad. The meds they gave me don’t work for the pain. The doctor told me no pushing lifting pulling of any sort. He hasn’t told me about the surgery he will on Monday. I’m not sure how long the recovery form it takes? Any tips? Not sure what I can do. I try and walk until my stomach can’t take it anymore. I can’t do the stairs.


I’ve had 3 of those procedures through the course of my life. I did have a lot of discharge for few days after bc I had excessive build up that was removed… I did have pain in abdominal area but worst was in my shoulders from the air trapped inside my body under my diaphragm. I would rest up and lay around til ur better honey and stay off the stairs for sure. Just be careful the discharge is not bright red blood bc that means that’s new blood coming from inside u and requires a call to dr

Go to the er, you may have gotten an infection. Don’t wait.

I would go get checked out. Better to be safe than sorry and you know your body. If you are experiencing something different from what the doctor told you to expect, then call him asap for advice or just go get checked at the er.

Call the doctor? and go to the hospital

It shouldn’t be that painful! My daughter was back to work the next day. Healed well. I’m wondering if it was an extensive amount of endo . Check with your Gyno right away. Feel better soon.

U need to go b checked ASAP

Call the doctor. I had that done five times before my hysterectomy.

I agree. Go to the ER. Do not wait.

Call your dr not post on Facebook


My surgery pain was about 5 days and I started to feel better just over a week I was back at work

I have had 3 surgeries.

Each time the recovery time was different.

Its painful and some bleeding and discharge is normal.

I just rested as much as i could.

I was much better after 2 weeks.

I had mine 5 weeks ago and I still have a lot of discharge. It’s definitely still normal after a couple weeks.

I’ve had surgery 4 times for this, each was definitely different. The pain medication doesn’t help but the pain should subside in about a week, maybe less depending on your severity of endo. Discharge each time, nothing insane after the first couple days. Always double check with your doctor’s office if you feel it isn’t right, you won’t get ease of mind otherwise.

Rest. Call your doctor

That was the worse pain I ever felt, and since then I’ve had 3 kids! The pain meds didn’t work for me either. I had it done 13 years ago so I don’t remember discharge, but I was bleeding for over a month straight is why I had it done in the first place. I’m sorry love but I would call the dr office im sure a nurse could answer that for you.

I had that same surgery 20+ years ago. I remember the pain but not the discharge. The pain ended up being a UTI and from my understanding is pretty common. You might want to check with your doctor especially before the weeked. I hope you get some relief soon!

I had the same surgery. Pain was awful, the discharge/blood didn’t stop for quite some time. The meds didn’t work for me either, i was in so much pain that I literally passed out from it. My husband had to call my Dr 3x to get meds prescribed. I had to go back for a follow up when I was told I had uterine leiomyomoa. Its a form of cancer. I feel your pain. I definitely would not wish this on my worst enemy.

I just has a laparoscopy yesterday. I’m in quite a but of pain, and swollen belly, (both to be expected) … some discharge that I was told would be normal. Of course if you’re super concerned, call your doctor. Best of luck with your recovery.

I have not had this surgery but if you are concerned or uncomfortable with what’s going on with you body reach out to your doctor. I hope you have a healthy recovery :heart:
