Meg, I have a question: How dod they decide that you had a return of Endo and or adhesions?? I'm going through the thought process of this now with my doctors! One says that he's been inside so many times that he's sure that all is removed but to be on the safe side let's see what will happen when taken off harmones!! Anyone with a clue what is supposed to happen (more pain or less and if there's no change how can one know if there's not already endo?)Another doctor is agreeing with the first stating it's probably not the cavity causing problems but the wall lining! And another is suggesting that he sees I'm in pain but soen't know what to do for me as he's not sure at all what's causing it! I know that we've heard about the wonderful doctors in this group, which I'm glad to see that they are available to some of us, but at what point does one decide that it is adhesions causing the pain and what to do about it?
