Hi - I assume the Zoladex is wearing off before the next injection is due as everyone's response to it may be different. Was it explained to you why you have been given it? It shuts down the hormones that trigger oestrogen production by the ovaries and since oestrogen feeds endo the theory is that if Zoladex stops pain then it must be due to endo and so stopping your oestrogen production by removing your ovaries will 'cure' your endo. But unfortunately hysterectomy isn't a cure for endometriosis. The most effective treatment is to remove the disease itself. Where was it found and what was done when you had your lap and how old are you? Could you give a description of your pain symptoms and whether it is just at period time.
