Hello and welcome!

I'm sorry, it sounds like you are having so much continued pain! Is it lower back pain for the most part? I'm not sure about kidney problems, but I've heard that endo is responsible for much of the back pain that we (with endo) feel. If you had a partial hysto because of the pain from endo, I would bet that your back pain is what's causing it. The webbing it forms can cause crazy amounts of pain, and can form anywhere in the abdominopelvic cavity. From what I've heard, it seems women with endo seem to have more problems with IBS, back pain, and all sorts of pain involving menstrual cycles of course... Have you talked to your OBGYN about it? I know there are a lot of women that continue to have endo growth and pain, long after they've had a full/partial hysto. Good Luck! and many pain-free moments!!
