Welcome to ehealthforum,
The worsening of pelvic pain that you describe could suggest possibility of endometriosis, adenomyosis, PID, pelvic adhesions, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, etc. Common imaging techniques can fail to detect changes due to endometriosis, pelvic adhesions, etc. A laparoscopic examination done is more helpful if endometriosis is suspected, and if endometriosis is detected, these can be removed at the same session. The presence of pelvic adhesions can also be a cause for severe symptoms and these too can be treated at time of laparoscopic evaluation. Post-surgery, women have better recovery and long term relief if treatment is combined with regression therapy with use of hormones. Endometriosis symptoms can persist or recur if estrogen production or supplementation is present. Symptoms can also persist if there has been deep retroperitoneal endometriosis (as these places are not easily reachable with conventional laparoscopy). Discuss your symptoms in detail with your treating doctor/gynecologist (not GP). Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
