If you're in the US then they would have possibly taken photo's and given a description of the operation, can you not request a copy?

Get a second opinion.

On my post op visit (after the lap), my doctor was very thorough. He even video taped the surgery and gave me a copy. I know exactly what happend. I think I spoke with my Dr. for a good 30 minutes about the surgery. Also, my doctor explained what he found during the lap to my mom- before I left the hospital (Mom drove me to and from the hospital). Later that day (after I slept off some of the drugs from earlier) I was informed from her what the Dr. had said. Needless to say, before my post op, I had a good idea of what took place and a list of questions I wanted to ask.

No, your not going insane! I wish you all the blessing in the world!

The doctor should have written surgery notes. You are able to get those. Call the office and request a copy of your file. I have mine and it's very interesting to read exactly what went on during surgery.

I think you should get a new doctor if it took that long to find out this report. my family talked to my doctor before I was even awake from surgery. He told them everything he found and did not find. and then I had my post op with in a few weeks and he talked to me even more then.
