Tips on how to prevent endometriosis coming back?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi all,

I am just recovering from laprascopic surgery where it was discovered I had endometriosis. I am due to see my gynae consultant again in 6 weeks time for a follow up post surgery, however, I was just wondering if in the mean time anyone had any tips on how to prevent endometriosis coming back? If there is anyway of preventing it from growing again even! I would rather not have to have many surgeries to get rid of the growing endometriosis in the long term.

Many thanks!

    Hi I don't think there is any thing proven as a defonite to prevent endometriosis from growing back. But there is things to prevent the pain and to help prevent it from growing so quickly. I was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2013 I had it lasered off and also I had the coil fitted. I can't thank the coil enough haha its been a God send. I'm also recovering from laparoscopy from the 19th of this month. Where endo was found buy only very very minor in comparison to 2013. I also take tablets called mefenamic acid (prescribed by my doctor) and they are a massive help when I have a flare up. Are you doing things to prevent endo pain now? X

    The only thing I know of are the ultra high dose birth control pills we took in the '60s & '70s. Don't know where you could get them now as the future threat of stroke & DVT put paid to them.

    If you discover something outside of what you might read here, please let us know.

    Hi there, i had laparatomy done 4 months ago and since then i have been prescribed Visanne to delay the recurrence of the cyst. I don't have any pain like most people do with endometriosis and sometimes i wonder what is happening inside. so far i have to wear a liner or pad everyday as I can't tell when my next period will happen and i have random days of just mild spotting or very little bleeding so that is also quite cumbersome to have to wear pads every now and then. For food, i read that its best to avoid soy products and anything processed so a change in diet would also help but can't guarantee 100% success rates yet. Hope this helps.
