You are definitely NOT being a wimp!
First of all, you had general anesthetic, which can affect some people for months. Fatigue, nausea, diarrhea, constipation, dry mouth, and other things can be attributed to the anesthetic.
Secondly, having a procedure done laparoscopically minimizes the amount of healing required for the muscles and skin, but doesn't change all that is done internally. Especially with endometriosis, your surgeon would have been handling and working with the majority of your organs, and there surely was some cutting and scraping involved. Just because you can't see the damage and the healing doesn't mean that it isn't there.
Treat yourself gently, and listen to your body --- you'll know when it's time to push a bit harder and when it's time to rest more.
Hope you feel better soon!

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.
Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.
