Jane Harrison Hohner, RN, RNP responded:
Dear gracie: MULTIPLE literature searches at the National Library of Medicine site on back pain after endometrial ablation (EA) did not yield any good information about treatment. The most frequent reason cited seemed to be adenomyosis (infiltrating endometriosis into the muscular wall of the uterus). One of the articles was even printed in a journal for chiropractors. I could not find any reference to back pain caused by the actual EA operation (eg. no evidence for nerve involvement).

If your GYN seems stumped by this new onset back pain perhaps you may want to consult with someone who specializes in back pain (ie orthopedist MD). Hopefully they would have some bteer insights about the mechanism for the pain--and its treatment.

In Sympathy,
Jane
