I had a 2nd Laparoscopy surgery done on November 4th to remove my endometriosis. It was an outpatient surgery and I was able to leave the same day. Usually with this surgery the recovery time is 1-2 weeks long. I was home for 2 days when suddenly my temperature started to rise and I wasn’t feeling well. On Wednesday November 6th I was taken to the hospital, they ran a series of tests and were unable to find a root cause of what was causing my temperature to increase. I was hospitalized for a whole week being pumped with almost 5 different antibiotics because they didn’t know what was the root cause of my infection. Due to the antibiotics I contracted colitis. Thinking The colitis was the root problem of my infection , they treated me for it , and sent me on my way. I was home for almost 4 days still dealing with a low grade fever. Then this past Monday November 18th I wasn’t able to move due to the severe pain in my lower abdomen. I was rushed to the hospital by ambulance and they finally found the root cause of my infection. A huge abscess was located in my pelvis where the surgery was performed . I was hospitalized again for another 5 days . I currently have been unable to drive, work or live without assistance for 3 going on 4 weeks. I still have no idea when I will be able to return to work or live on my own again. I have an at-home nurse and still have a drain in my body getting rid of this infection. Due to these series of events I am struggling with my medical bills and my everyday bills. I’m not one to ask for assistance in this way, and it kills me to even have to write this , but I am out of options. My family and friends have been supporting me through this tough time , but I can’t ask for more than they have already given me. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read my story.
