Day after laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis and I feel weak and shaking and fever at night of 99.8 is this ok?
Call surgeon: The fact you are weak and "shaky" makes me most concerned. The temp of 99.8 is very low grade and not a panic value at this time. However, all of these symptoms together certainly warrant a call to the doctor who did the surgery as they know your case best and can further advise you. ...Read more

A cause of pain: Endometriosis is a condition where the uterine lining implants somewhere outside the uterus in the abdomen. It can implant on a tube, an ovary, the bowel, the abdominal side-wall, etc. It tends to bleed just like it would inside the uterus during a period, except that it is inside the abdomen. It causes the surrounding tissue to become irritated and inflammed and this is painful. ...Read more
Yes.: Not all patients with endometriosis have a family history, but many do. If you are having pelvic pain, severe pain with your periods or pain on penetration with intercourse, you should see your gynecologist. While you can not see endometriosis on an ultrasound, you can see other sources of pelvic pain. Robotic laparoscopic surgery is the best way to see endometriosis. ...Read more
Endo: In short we don't know. There are some theories that suggest that endometriosis occurs because of back bleeding through the fallopian tubes into the pertoneal cavity and the body is not able to digest this blood for which reason endometriosis develops. Most women have retrograde menses but only about 10 percent may get endometriosis due to a faulty immunological system. ...Read more
Multiple ways: Once endometriosis is diagnosed (usually with surgery), depending on the severity, it can be treated with hormone suppressing medications. Sometimes in mild cases, oral contraceptive pills can help. In severe cases where large cysts have formed or where it is causing blockage of the bowels or urinary system, surgery is needed and may require a hysterectomy with removal of the ovaries. ...Read more
Endometriosis is a chronic female condition where parts of the uterine lining (endometrium) sheds through the tubes and implants in the pelvic cavity. The result is no symptoms, to chronic pain, to difficulty conceiving, to pelvic masses.
It is estimated that endometriosis occurs in 6–10% of women, presenting in the early reproductive years. Laparoscopy at times is used for diagnosis. ...Read more
Endometriosis: Surgery is the gold standard, and reduces the amount/extent of disease. The most effective medical treatment is the drug lupron(r). It is costly with some side effects, but is safe and often as good for pain as surgery. The injectible contraceptive depo-provera gives mixed results. A much older drug, danazol, is mostly no longer used. ...Read more
Pelvis, abdomen: Endometriosis is a serious problem in which little pieces of tissue (similar to the uterine lining that bleeds and sheds each month) are trapped inside one's pelvis and abdomen. Rarely, women may have tissue trapped in the chest or other places. With each menstrual period, the trapped tissue sheds and bleeds on the inside of the abdomen (the blood has no way to leave the body), causing much pain. ...Read more
Endometriosis: Patches of endometrial tissue—normally occurring only in the lining of the uterus (endometrium)—appear outside the uterus. The misplaced endometrial tissue responds to hormones as normal endometrial tissue, it can bleed and cause pain. When it is inactive, the patches of endometrium remain quiet and do not bleed or cause pain for some time. ...Read more
Yes !: Endometriosis close to the rectum may cause pain due to scarring like in this picture. This is especially try closer to your periods. Also nerve endings get hypersensitive around the disease. If advanced, the lesions may invade the rectal area ! for these reasons, it's important to make the diagnosis with laparoscopy and if possible, resection of as much disease as possible. ...Read more
Heres a classic pic: This is an endometriotic implant in the pelvis. These lesions are hormonally sensitive and will bleeds during menses. Endometriosis in the ovary can cause scarring that ultimately walls itself off to become an endometrioma which then becomes a blood filled (or chocolate cyst - becuase the old blood becomes brown and thick) cyst. ...Read more
