Arg... Having THE WORST period of my life today - and apart from the major disappointment (when I'd just allowed myself to hope) I feel like I'm dying. This is my first period after my laparoscopy and I was hoping it would mean less painful periods! Knife like pains, dizzy, cold sweat, diarrhoea, the works. Can any other ladies who have had a lap tell me whether it's normal to have a terrible period after a lap and if it gets better??
