Hi I was diagnosed in Sept 2012 with severe stage 4 endo at laparoscopy (after my GP kept telling me I had IBS). I had my left ovary removed along with a 9cm chocolate cyst (agony!), numerous adhesions which were attached to my bladder, bowel and gall bladder, removal of part of my right ovary and the attached 2 smaller cysts, womb ablation and fitted with a Mirena coil. The 1st 4 months were pain free, even tho I continued to bleed into month 6 (very heavy). Now I have got tummy pains again and a very sharp pain where my left ovary was.. I'm confused as they took that away. Been to c my GP and am now waiting to c the Gynae Dr again. Is it poss that my endo has returned this quickly?? I'm 41 and am thinking of asking for the full hysterectomy as I don't want to feel like this again and having finished with kiddies. Will the Dr b able to tell me on examination or will he have to do another laparoscopy to find out? Any help would b good Many thanks x
