Hi Jaynie, I just went through just about the same as you.I had a hysterectomy 4/98 with LSO for LLQ pain.Since I have had a laporoscopy 10/98,4/99 and 11/99 all for LLQ pain the first 2 laps.the Dr. found severe adhesions.With this last surgery the Dr. found endometriosis and did a RSO.He was going to keep me off of replacement estrogen for 3 months but due to severe migraines he started me on premarin.I was taking the premarin for 3 weeks and the pain in the LLQ increased immensly(sp) I also started having terrible diarrhea (I have endo on the bowel)so my gyn told me to stop the estrogen .The diarrhea has gotten a little better but the pain is still there although I do think it is a little less intense than it was with taking the premarin.Hope this answers your question about the estrogen."FRIENDS THAT STICK TOGETHER" Peggy
