Stage 4 Endo: Stage IV Endometriosis unfortunately indicates massive adhesions and intestinal as well as reproductive structure involvement. Given that scenario, pregnancy must first be ruled out with a pregnancy test. Secondly, your GYN MD must decide, if the pregnancy test is negative, how to proceed such as period induction or evaluation of the seriousness of the Endometriosis. ...Read more

Complicated Surgery: Your history of surgeries makes me worry that another surgery for you might be difficult if you have a physical exam that shows a uterus that's fairly stuck in the pelvis. If you haven't tried medical methods of care for endometriosis, I would do that first. Consider continuous pills, Depo, Lupron, (leuprolide) etc. ...Read more

Not usually: Becoming aroused usually involves some engorgement, or mild swelling of t, he uterus, vulvar organs/tissues, which may be the cause of this new pain. It is not a normal post-op phenomenon.

Recent surgery: Some discomfort following that procedure may not be unusual, but it shouldn't be severe or persist much longer. Residual sludge may be a factor, but I recommend that you be evaluated by the surgeon who performed your surgery if symptoms persist or worsen, if there's significant tenderness or any inflammation of the incision. ...Read more
Severe pain on side of ovary/tube removal 6 days after robotic surgery. Also had endo cut out and cyst on r-ovary removed. Should i call dr. Or wait?
Call Dr. : Having had recent surgery the cause of the pain is commonly that very surgery. However, with robotics in general and six days later having severe pain especially if it is sudden is possibly cause for concern. With endometriosis resection and surgery it is more common to damage structures such as the ureter or nerves that lie close to the areas removed. In any case check with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can endometriosis br diagnosis w/o surgery? diangosis today with endo based off monthly r pelvic pain during mens that is getting worse.
No: #endometriosis is a curious disorder without proven cause, and commonly used treatments are speculative.
