Hi Anon

Thank you for your question!

For the benefit of our readers, FAH = Full Abdominal Hysterectomy.

Unfortunately, endometrial pain can persist after a hysterectomy. Endo can inbed itself in the pelvis, bowel, bladder and other places so even a full hysterectomy, it can remain. While this is quite unusual, it can happen.

Are you having HRT? In some instances, that can make things worse.

Anon, I recommend you read more information on Hyster Sisters - a website dedicated to giving women all the information (good and bad) about hysterectomies. You can read more here: http://www.hystersisters.com/vb2/article_308151.htm
