Can You Still Have Endometriosis After A Hysterectomy
Causes of endometriosis after a complete hysterectomy and two laporotomys in a year and still returned, pains worse after surgerys that was 10yrs ago?
Good question!: It is difficult to explain the return of your endometriosis after hyterectomy. The causes of endometriosis are not very well understood. It is possible some of your peritoneal cells may converted to endometrial cells. Or some of your residual endometriosis reactivated after a period of time.
How can I still have pain even after years of surgeries and a full hysterectomy. Can there be endometriosis in the layers of muscle? Why am I bleedi
Pelvic pain: Usually, pelvic pain due to endometriosis is relieved by complete hysterectomy and removal of ovaries. Sometimes scar tissue, unexcised lesions or adhesions cause persistent pain. More likely, there are other causes. Get a thorough work up through a gyn specialist.See 2 more doctor answers
I am in the process of preparing for a total hysterectomy due to endometriosis. I have already had 2 laproscopic abdominal surgeries and have multiple adhesions in my abdomen. Can my hysterectomy still be laproscopic or would open be best? Appt on 1/17.
Depends: It would be best to have it done laparoscopically, however that depends in the amount of scar tissue present. You need to find the best minimally invasive gyn surgeon in your area and bring them the operative reports of your two surgeries. See what they recommend.

Same as before: Common symtoms of endometriosis vary from person to person but include pain with sex, pain with bowel movements, pain with voiding, and pain with ovulation. There would be other symptoms that would occur with the period - but not of course after the hysterectomy. If the ovaries are removed with the hysterectomy (or later if needed), you have a much better chance of resolving the pain.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes, but less common: A hysterectomy is a surgery involving the removal of the uterus, not necessarily the ovaries. The ovaries produce the hormones that can drive growth/stimulation of endometriosis. So, if ovaries are left in place, endometriosis may be more likely to grow after a hysterectomy.See 1 more doctor answer
Complicated: A very complicated question you should talk over with a gynecologist expert in the management of endometriosis. Assuming you are the patient we are talking about (49 years old), you have very little to lose in having a hysterectomy and potentially a lot to gain. It is very dependent, however, on specifics of each case.
If your endometriosi: Is bad enough then u may need after other measures like meds and less invasive surgery has been tried, hopefully if u have to have the hyesterec then your endometriosis will be gone or markedly lessened so u can enjoy life, bad endomtriosis is not compatible with enjoying life.
I am trying to find a dr in portland or that specializes in endometriosis. Unique situation. I have already had a hysterectomy, so not having kids.
Doctor in Portland: Hi my friend, who is an excellent GI doctor, kandice knigge is in portland. I bet her staff would be able to direct you to a good gynecologist. She is also here on health tap.
It can: In many cases yes. If the primary issue is centrally located pain with the menstrual cycle, a hysterectomy is likely to be very helpful. There are also surgical treatments short of a hysterectomy, including resection of endometriosis and pre sacral neurectomy. You need to see a good pelvic pain doctor to help you work out the best option for you.
Not sure what the: Question is? We can better answer your question if it is more specific. Please clarify and re-ask.
After I had a hysterectomy, I was told that I had adenomyosis. Is that different from endometriosis?
Yes it is different: Adenomyosis is when there are glands from the lining of the uterus up inside the wall of the uterus. Endometriosis is when these cells and glands from the lining of the uterus are growing outside the uterus. Adenomyosis is a common cause of heavy periods.See 2 more doctor answers
What are the chances of having a hysterectomy with endometriosis? One has formed into a tumor about 5.6cm.
ZERO!: You don't need a hysterectomy for endometriosis of the ovary (endometrioma). This can be: 1. Followed closely with serial ultrasounds if asyptomatic 2. Trial of ocps if marginally symptomatic 3. If having pain, then removal of the encometrioma alone (cystectomy) can be done and use Lupron (leuprolide) post-operatively 4. For fertility, debate if removal is indicated, but if 4-5cm- then would remove.
