Endometriosis post surgery

Post by hmgilbert79 »

Hi, I had a hysterectomy in Dec last year and was found to have stage 4 deep infiltrating endo and adenomyosis. Endo was found in ovary, uterus and bowel/rectum. The surgeon said he removed all ovarian endo and 95% of lesion from my rectum. I am eating DF and GF to avoid flare up of remaining lesion, and I am symptom free - am I still considered to have endometriosis? I don't really know how to talk about it - I'm endo free, I had endo or I have symptom free endo...seems trivial but would be really good to know. Do we ever get rid of endo as such?

Good question. Technically, there is no "cure" for endo, but achieving symptom-free is pretty close to not having endo anymore. Several of my patients talk about how "they used to have endometriosis."
