Endometriosis still causing problems?

Hi. I was diagnosed with endo at age 19. I had 4 major operations to remove cysts. The specialist surgeon said it was the worst endo he had ever seen and asked to film the operations. I saw him 20 years later and he was still using the films to teach!

I only say that to explain I had a bad case! So, now aged 56, I'm having health problems. I had an early menopause, at age 40. I thought that would be the end of my problems but it seemed they got worse. I have allergie/histamine issues now that seem unconnected but I've read about a mast cell activation connection with endo? I'm just trying to put the pieces together. My last scan, after I had pain, showed my endometrium was thickened to 8mm. They investigated but all was well. Any advice anyone?
