How can u confirm about Endro after FAH w overies tubes removed

Hi ladies I had a FAH with tubes and overies removed October of last year - the pathologist report stated "possible endo to my tubes" my doctor stated that my overies were removed due to severe scars - is this true ?

Re: How can u confirm about Endro after FAH w overies tubes removed



Endometriosis is diagnosed after a hysterectomy just like before a hysterectomy. Generally, a laparoscopy would be done and the surgeon would look for any endometriosis implants. Depending on the surgeon, the implants could also be removed then and sent to pathology. A hysterectomy, with or without the removal of the ovaries, is not a cure for endometriosis.

I can't answer as to whether or not your ovaries were removed due to severe scars. Only your doctor and surgical team would know that. What did your surgical report say? Endometriosis can cause scar tissue issues so it is not a stretch to think there was scar tissue around the ovaries especially if there was endometriosis involving the tubes.

My right ovary was removed due to extensive scarring caused by endo. My surgeon tried to save it, but there was just too much scar tissue. So, it is possible that your ovaries were removed for the same reason.
