Is it poss. to have endo 3 years post hyst

I was on this board REGULARLY when I was first diagnosed with fibroids three years ago. I had the hyst for fibroids that measured 1 FOOT in diameter! Now, after having struggled with "pelvic pain" since I was about 6-9 months post-op, I am scheduled for a laparoscopy 3-30. My Dr. is wondering about the possibilty of endometriosis or possible scar tissue. Is it possible to have endo after having a hysterectomy? I would have thought that all of my uterine junk would have been long gone after the hyst and couldn't be showing up I wrong in this thinking?
Any info is appreciated. I'm scared all over again! I know 3 people that have just been diagnosed with ovarian cancer - I don't want to be the next! Thought I was done with this business after I had the hyst. My Dr. said I had cute little ovaries...what happened?

Is it poss. to have endo 3 years post hyst

Endo is absolutely possible post hysterectomy, regardless of whether you keep your ovaries. Endo is stimulated by the monthly cycle of hormones, so could be stimulated by your overies or HRT. Plus I think I read somewhere that even without HRT or ovaries, some women have endo come back after a hyst.

It sounds like you DID keep your ovaries, and that could be the cause of endo and your pain.

The laparascopy is DEFINITELY the right thing to do - you might also ask your doctor if they could do an operative laparascopy - that's where if they DO find endo, they take it out right then and there, and you don't have to schedule a separate surgery for it.

You could also have scar tissue or adhesions from your hyst, which, again, you doctor MIGHT be able to do something about during the laprascopy, if you talk to him and ask him.

Keep your chin up and good luck! Let us know how things go!
