Susan, What are your pain symptoms? I had a TAH/BSO on Mar. 2 99 and started having pain, mainly lower back pain that almost seems nerve related about 4 months after my surgery. I'm scheduled for a diag. lap and possible removal of adhesions on April 12. I had endometriosis mainly in the cul-de-sac area and behind my uterus. I also had adenomyosis and fibroids. I have had a previous lap. to diagnos my endo and had my gall bladder removed in 98 laproscopically. They thought that was causing my pain but it was the endo. I wish you luck with your lap. on 4/27. I have a strong pulse very close to my belly button and I know I have had a ultrasound done to make sure where that main artery is for doing the lap. It does make one a little nervous. Colleen
