That's how endometriosis tends to behave, unfortunately. Surgery to remove --> preventative measures --> surgery to remove --> repeat.

I'd definitely talk to your gyno about it.

If the surgery was done by a non endo specialist than yes it could come back. I can help you find a good surgeon if you let me know where you live
