What can I do about the pain from an endometrial implant? It is located in the outter muscle (rectus sheath) in the lrq.

Hormonal suppression: Continuous use of birth control pills can cause regression of endometrial implants; Lupron is extremely effective in shrinking /causing regression of endometrial implants, as is the Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot.

How long does the pain from a post rectus hematoma last? I had surgery on january 17th for a hydosalpinx, during the surgery the artery to the rectus muscle was nicked but not perforated. However, the pressure in the atery caused a tear and 6 days later

Sorry: Sorry to hear there. You pain shouldn't be getting worse. If it is you need to see a physician. However the pain may last for several weeks depending on the size of hematoma and it should slowly and certainly decrease as time goes by.

Good luck.
