Over 2 1/2 weeks ago, I had a exploratory surgery in which the adhesions were discovered and burned away. I STILL have back pain where the adhesions were burned away and I would consider the pain to be worse than before the surgery... and now have an additional pain in the upper right pelvic area. My doctor is unsure of what it may be and has mentioned that it might be a pulled muscle. She is an obgyn specialist that admits that intestinal adhesions are not her area of expertise and wants me to look elsewhere for help. To me, it almost feels like I yanked something inside and it snapped and now it hurts. It is worse when I change positions, worse at night and first thing in the morning. My surgical wounds were slow to heal since most of the biodegradeable stiches were visible in the wounds and keeping them open after my other stiches were removed. Is it possible I could have an infection brewing? I did not have a fever when I had peritonitis last summer and if my nails hadn't stopped growing, we wouldn't have thought it was an infection since my only symptom was pain... and I just slowly deteriorated over time and became extremely weak. I find the current pulled muscle story to be plausible but unlikely since I have had so much pain since the surgery. We believe the back pain is inflammation and/or adhesions trying to grow back but don't have a suggestion for the new pain in front. Any suggestions?
