    Is thick discharge after laparoscopy for endometriosis normal?

    I had laparoscopy surgery where they removed some endometriosis by laser in oct. 16th. I started my menstrual cycle 2 days ago and it started out orange and now its getting regular, but this evening i found 4 large clumps of discharge that look like thick skin with really dark almost black spots in them. it has been exactly a month since the surgery and i have still been hurting pretty bad. i would just like to know if this is normal or should i be concerned?

    My concern is that you describe "still hurting' 1 month after surgery. The pain may be related to the incision etc.  but the biggest risk factor in any surgery and complication is post operative infection. I think you should contact your surgeon for a review just to set your mind at ease.
