My gyn removed oart of it during the suregry in april, it was seriusly attached, and bound up with adhesions, and on the second surgery he removed the rest b/c it did not help any. I forgot what they said, but they did think it would help keep the bowel from being so severely attached to the pelvic floor. He did not like the fact that the tranverse colon supposed to be across your navel was stuck to my pelvic floor, and it was smothering the small bowel. That is supposed to help when we get such dense scar tissue. I know I am si sick and tired of fighting this pain, I have had alot of pain since I was out and walking alot today! Oh well, try to get exercise on weekends, and rest on monday! The flea market is like out second job, we deal in antiques and we make alot on weekends, then it keeps me from working I cannot be dependable right now!
