> In October 2000, I began having a sharp pain to the left of my right hip

> right overy was gone (ob/gyn believes it was just me ovulating) but the
> continued. She did tests to see if it was appendicitis, which came back
> negative. I had a lower CAT done, a procedure to check my kidneys, 2
> more sonograms, and finally they decided to do a laporoscapy (my
> aplogies for any mis spelled words).
> During the surgery she found that my colon was adherered to my abdominal
> wall. She removed the colon from the wall, took out my appendix since
> she was in there, check my uterus and overies.. and closed me up... and
> I thought I was fine.
> The pain came back in January and has been getting worse as days pass.
> Could it possibly be that the colon has re-adhered? Why does it do this?
> Will it keep doing it all my life? By not getting it removed, could
