To determine the quality of life following the radical excision of recto-vaginal endometriosis.


Patients undergoing surgery for severe endometriosis with bowel involvement were asked to complete pre-operative and post operative questionnaires at 2, 6 and 12 months, then 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 years post operatively.

Quality of life measured using the EHP-30 and EQ-5D questionnaires. Bowel symptoms were measured using GIQLI. Dysmenorrhoea, dyspareunia, dyschezia and chronic pain were measured using a visual analogue scale.
