1 doctor agrees
In brief: Endo
There is not a particular pattern, but some studies suggest that 60% of the women will recur with pain 6-12 mo after stopping treatment.
Other studies have shoen that recurrence could be as late as 5-7 years after proper ressective surgery. I belive that if all the painful conditions associated with endometriosis are treated at once pt can be asymptomatic for many years.
