@king75 Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. You have discovered that you have endometriosis after multiple surgeries related to complications of hysterectomy surgery. During the most recent surgery you were told that you have endometriosis and you are wondering if your original hysterectomy caused endometriosis, as you were unaware that you had endometriosis prior to surgery.

You’ll notice that I added your question to the Fertility & Reproductive Health group, along with the Women’s Health group. I did this so you could connect with members like, @sandytoes14 @contentandwell @naturegirl5 @airey2 @cherelle, in the Women’s Health group and members like, @phoenixzip @loren12 @jamorris9, in the Fertility & Reproductive Health group.

Below I have linked past related discussions. You may want to scroll through the past comments.

May I ask what your surgeon(s) and/or provider(s) have said about your requiring multiple surgeries and the recent development of endometriosis?

I just had the surgery Saturday night. The surgery was to remove my ovaries and remainder of my fallopian tubes. It was thought that I had ovarian cysts which were causing the pain. When I woke up from the surgery I was briefly told by my Dr. that my ovaries were removed and that I had endometriosis on both ovaries, in my abdomen and I think on my bladder. That is the only discussion I have had with my doctor following my surgery. I am waiting for a follow up appointment. I Don't have any details, or any understanding of what I am facing. Kind of in the dark right now.

I'm sorry, @erikas I have never had a hysterectomy nor have I had endometriosis. I wish I could help but I have no experience with either.
