Can a woman in her late 40s still get endometriosis, and can it cause pains to radiate all the way to the sides of the abdomen and lower back?

In brief: Yes

But unlikely. If you've never had that before i suggest you see your physician.

In brief: Yes

Yes, yes, and yes - although it's much less common to make a first diagnosis in the late 40s.
Remember endometriosis can only be diagnosed with certainty by surgery, either laparoscopy or (less often) laparotomy.
