it sounds like your endo has come back
unfortunately it never completely goes, so even having a hysterectomy will not stop it. bit rubbish I know.
endo requires oestrogen and even though our ovaries produce oestrogen, all mammals produce it in smaller amounts, so your case with your ovaries present you may get endo regrowth but even if you had a complete hysterectomy (a friend of mine had it) you could still have regrowth.
let us know what the lap finds xx
Ovaries have to be removed too as they continue to produce oestrogen which feeds the endo. So does hrt. I just dont understand why gynaes dont explain this to women who undergo womb removal x
I know I feel that I know more about the condition than they do .and this worries me .I feel I have never found a gynae who truly understands it x
