I had a total hysterectomy done in 2004 due to a severe case of endo and adenomyosis (the endo was growing into my uterus). I still had pain in my abdomin after the surgery, so a couple months later my doc took my appendix out. The pain went away for awhile. Now the pain is back worse than ever. I am having moderate to severe pain in the right lower quadrant. It's tender to the touch, I feel lots of pelvic pressure and intercourse is painful. I didn't think that I could get endo again because all of my reproductive organs are gone. However, I read on the internet that up to 15% of women, even after all reproductive organs are gone, can have recurring endo in the vaginal walls and/or bowels. Is this true? Or could it possibly just be adhesions?
