What Are Signs Of Endometriosis After A Hysterectomy
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. ...Read moreSee 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.

If someone with endometriosis has a total hysterectomy, are the chances of endometriosis not coming back better if they don't take HRT after surgery?
Yes, theorectically: If a "total hysterectomy" is performed, that is, removal of the uterus and both ovaries, the body's natural source of estrogen is greatly reduced. If then hrt is taken, that estrogen can theoretically stimulate growth of endometriois, but the progestin taken will counteract the estrogen's effects.
