The last 2 years I have been suffering with low back pain, nerve pain in my groin and down my leg and problems with my bowel. I never thought that it could be endo and its taken this long to rule out anything mechanical with my back. I increased my dose of HRT (oestrogen only) about 2-3 years ago and wondering if this is connected? Has anyone else thought they were through it post hysterectomy to find it recurring. I am waiting to have a investigative lap' but feeling devistated that it could be the source of the pain. Desperate for other stories. I had about 16 ops in total from 25 to 35 and then further ops for pelvic venous congestion, I can't bear the thought of more surgery. I just don't know what to think.
