I've had a laproscopy in June 2013 and was diagnosed with endo. At that time I had endo removed (not sure what stage) and was told it was inactive and shouldn't come back. I have had issues with the dr and don't trust many things he said.
Anyway, the surgery did nothing for the pain, and in some places made the pain far worse. I saw a naturopath who put me on an endo diet / estrogen clearance diet which worked within a few weeks. I'd been pretty much 100% pain free for 5-6 months. But last month I had horrible period pain and this month I'm in bad pain leading up to O, which is due in a few days. Previously the pain started just during / leading to AF, then at O and AF, and then for 28 or more days per month. So I'm feeling endo has returned.
If you've had endo removed, how long did it take to come back?? Any advice you've got on this would be awesome!!
