Endometriosis ruining my life and had hysterectomy

by Emily Green

I'm only 26 and had a total hysterectomy due to endometriosis in August 23rd 2011, and I was told a while ago that my endometriosis was already on my intestine.

Not totally sure if this is my endometriosis returning, but for the past month I've been having nausea and bloating, bowels are strangely acting up. Can't barely eat. Been to the hospital 2 times and nothing shows up in a CAT scan or an x-ray?

Been to a family doctor too, no clue, just keeps putting me on certain foods to eat, and so much medicine. Could this be my endometriosis acting up again? I thought once you got rid of it, it was gone. Yes currently on Esterdoil pills.

Title: I am having the same troubles!!

I had my hysterectomy almost 2 years ago after my 5th baby.. I was GOOD, AMAZING after!! I was working out, losing weight ETC!!

Now here I am in serious pain again :( No idea why!! I have the pain, tenderness, bloating, nausea, vomiting!!

And what makes it all worse is the looks I get from people and the "I thought the hysterectomy would end all this" LIKE I ASKED FOR THIS!!! I wish more people understood I REALLY do!!

But I have had 2 surgeries to figure this out and nothing!! I do know I have a spigelian hernia that they have yet to fix.. But I honestly think its the endometriosis!!


Title: Hysterectomy (kept ovaries). Now endometriosis is at its worst

I am 28 years old, I was diagnosed with endometriosis age of 22, I have had 13 laparoscopies, endometrial ablation, and hysterectomy was done in 2010.

Needless to say when I had hysterectomy done the DR that did it cut my vaginal wall and my colon, then next day rushed into surgery and he didn't fix his mistake.

Then had 2 blood transfusions, and 2 days later sent home with fever and infection. And over half blood loss. 3 days after ended up in ICU after emergency surgery and woke up weeks later with a colostomy bag! My problems have gotten 10x's worse.

I've been at ER 4 times in 6 weeks, I have a 6cm cyst on ovary, and can not have a bowel movement, I'm so constipated, nausea, vomiting, fatigue.

I saw my OB Surgeon today and says I'm too high risk and my insides are so messed up and covered wit endometriosis, scar tissue, adhesions everywhere even on intestines & colon! But endometriosis does not go away, and most cases symptoms are worse then ever imagined!
