I suffered from endometriosis years ago and had total pelvic clearance. That was in 1999. Last week I was admitted to hospital with severe pain in right side. Surgical team transferred me to gynae ward. I had internal scan done and told I have very large cyst behind my bowel and 3 on my right side. I have been on HRT for years and had it changed twice, then recently I had it changed again to higher dose and it has flared up the deposits left behind on my bowel. I have now been referred back to endometriosis specialist for laparascopy. Such a let down I was told hysterectomy cured endo. I know I had an extremely severe case of endo originally but didn't know if HRT was too high can be enough to start even the smallest seed left behind to grow again. Very disappointed. Is anyone the same as me?
