    Getting backache even after endometriosis removal
    An_241749 posted:

    I am 25 years old. I was diagnosed with endometriosis in Sep 2011. I had a laparotomy surgery for the cyst removal. My doctor informed me that I had lot of scar tissues and asked me to plan for pregnancy within first 6 months after the surgery. I always wanted to have a baby.

    I got 2 regular periods after the surgery.I am getting the same old backaches again and I am feeling so restless. I was thinking that I would conceive this month.. All this backaches coming makes me worry..
    Can someone please advise what I should be doing?

    I have had lower back/hip pain for years since I started having endo symptoms. It can be a "normal" problem caused by endo. But since there is always a possibility it could be from something else I would suggest either mentioning it to your doctor or try seeing a chiropractor. I see my chiropractor often (usually once a month) and it has helped incredibly with the pain. Most will usually have you get an xray to see if there is any clear problem and then start treating you. Good luck with ttc! I have my fingers crossed for you And keep us updated on how things are going
