Since my last post about two weeks ago, things have gone downhill. The
abdominal pains had started recurring. Today I had a follow-up with my
GP, who read me the report from the gynecologist in Fredericton who did
my lap on March 21st and found the adhesions. He was only able to lyse
"some" of the adhesions due to the denseness of them and the involvement
of the bowel and intestine and the fact that he was operating alone. So
I guess now I settle in to waitfor another surgery appointment.
Hopefully this time I will be able to talk them into open abdominal
surgery instead of lap, and convince them to use a barrier to prevent
the adhesions reforming. Of course, here in Canada the doctors don't
like prescribing pain killers if they don't absolutely have to, which
prevents you becoming addicted to them, I suppose, but lessens the
effectiveness of over-the-counter drugs.
Gee, I wonder if I can buy Ibuprofen wholesale from Wal-Mart????
