Still having symptoms from Endometriosis
Posted: Wed Mar 06, 2019 3:05 pm
I read that the average time it takes to be diagnosed with Endometriosis is 10 years. I was diagnosed 23 years after the symptoms started. I was also told that it resolves itself after the Menopause. Due to the problems associated with Endometriosis I have had 4 surgeries culminating in a hysterectomy. I still have symptoms and I have now been informed that in some post-menopausal women, the symptoms actually continue due to there still being implants and oestrogen from sources other than the ovaries. Is this the case? How would this be treated?
