What is the best hormone treatment for mild endometriosis after surgery (2nd cyst/surgery. Surgeon recognized endo.) and first time treatments?
Birth Control Pills: The best actual "treatment" for endometriosis is laparoscopic excision (cutting out) of all endometriosis - remembering that endometriosis can have many different looks other than the "classic dark spots". If it is all excised then there is no need for further treatment. If however there is endometriosis still present, the easy first line treatment is birth control pills. ...Read more

Do surgeons do pathology tests on endometriosis adhesions and lesions?? I have servere endo deep pelvic & residual with kissing ovaries & endometrioma
Not always.: Endometriosis is usually pretty obvious to the surgeon and pathology tests are often not needed just to make the diagnosis at the time of surgery; however, if anything is removed from the body it will be sent to pathology for tests. Biopsies are sometimes done if there is question about the diagnosis. Best wishes! ...Read more
Excision: I have to respectfully disagree with dr. Beard. While 80% of patients have pain relief while on lupron, (leuprolide) over half of all patients have a recurrence of pain within a year, some after 6 mos. Complete excision of endo can be done without removing any reproductive organs, and has a 80% chance of curing endo with no recurrence of endo. There are no hormonal side effects like Lupron (leuprolide) has. ...Read more
