total hysterectomy

I had severe abdominal pain when I was 14. The OB/Gyn found mild endometriosis. For the next 16 years I went through 8 abdominal sugeries including a total hysterectomy at age 28. But I was still iin horrible pain. My GI specialist said I had GERD when I was 23 and found damage with an endoscope but never thought of celiac. My neurologist said it was crazy to think anything in my abdomen could be causing my daily migraines. Finally my primary care doctor did a celiac test when I was 30 and found celiac. I am not sure I will ever recover completely as I am still in pain a year later.
