Women who undergo surgical treatment of endometriosis are likely to have recurrence. A study by Vercellini in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology stated that afer endometriosis surgery about 60% have recurrence of pain and that it's very important to take medical therapy after the surgery to make sure the pain doesn't return. They have showing in other studies that just using medical therapy for under 3 months after surgery is of no benefit at all.. Actually the type of surgery that people have is important.
