Familiar pain after 7 years

Jan 31 will be the 7th anniversary of my hysterectomy for endometriosis.
Over the years I will occasionally get these all too familiar pains in my pelvic area and back that feel so much like the endo pain. These pains are so uncomfortable that pain killers are the only thing that take the edge off.
I am 51 and I am on hormones. Could it just be scar tissue acting up?
Any suggestions would be helpful

Re: Familiar pain after 7 years


I am sorry you are feeling those familiar pains again! Are you keeping a symptom diary detailing them?

It is possible there is some endometriosis causing you some issues. Additionally, endo and prior surgery sets us up for an environment that can allow for adhesions. Unfortunately, neither endo or adhesions typically show up on any test. Thus, we often need a laparoscopy to diagnosis and treat both.

My best advice is to get in to see your doctor, taking your symptom diary with you. It is possible that reducing your estrogen could help. Are you using any progesterone? Progesterone can help with endometriosis and some doctors only allow their endo patients to use estrogen replacement if they also use some type of progesterone.

There are some options you can try if your doctor feels that endo is the problem--Lupron, Depo Provera, aromatase inhibitor, pain medications. If the problem might be adhesions, pelvic massage might help along with pain medications.

I wish you the best! Keep us posted! s
