I had a hysterectomy and removal of my tubes and ovaries. However, two years later, I had a very painful area in my pelvis and was told that I had endometriosis. Is this possible?

Endo post Hyst: Removal of the uterus tubes and ovaries is not curative for endometriosis if the endometriosis was not removed at the time of surgery. Even then microscopic foci of endometriosis could regenerate down the road and cause pain. Now i would like to remind you that there are other conditions that may cause pain not related to endometriosis, such as interstitial cystitis, pelvic floor spasms.

Yes, in part: Probiotics are often helpful. These are good bacteria, and i usually recommend culturelle brand, which is one capsule daily. If your ibs is diarrhea-predominant, you can try enteric coated peppermint oil capsules, 0.2 ml 3x daily. Turmeric may also help, by decreasing inflammation in the GI tract; take 300-400 mg 3x daily of a standardized extract managing stress and diet are equally important.

Hip Joint and spine: The pain in the anatomical region you have mentioned could be from the hip joint, spine, and soft tissue infection. Venous blood clots can result in pain and swelling in the calf and thigh but not in the buttocks. A good history and physical exam will usually identify the system involved.

How can I measure bouts of diarrhea from irritable bowel syndrome so my doctor knows how bad?

Keep a log: One way would be to keep a record of dates and times of the events. This may also help with identifying any patterns, especially if certain foods are being eaten or certain stressors encountered frequently when the bouts are especially bad. By keeping the record you have an accurate log of events and do not have to try to remember which can sometimes be difficult if there are many.
