This is my first post, so here goes. I am only just finding out about endo and adeno. After the coil, an ablation and hormone injections to deal with 'fibroids', I finally managed to push for a hysterectomy as I still had so much pelvic pain. The hysterectomy was on 19th July and it was only on my follow up on the 19th September that I was told that the operation had taken 4.5 hours to remove extensive adhesions and scar tissue. (They took my cervix but left my ovaries) The consultant described that they had found endo in my fibroids in my womb? From the description I take this to be adeno but am not sure so have asked for a copy of my notes from the hospital. I was totally unprepared for this having always just been told it was fibroids. I have since done a lot of research on in and now have loads of questions. I still have pelvic pain and bad lower back ache. I am going to ring the consultant tomorrow and get another appointment but don't want to be fobbed off with the excuse that the pain I am feeling is post op pain when I think it is the same problem come back. After reading on this forum I feel pretty certain that the pain I am feeling is endo where the surgeon didn't get it all and wonder if anyone else had had this experience post hysterectomy? I will add that my hysterectomy was abdominal and not keyhole due to previously having had a caesarian.
