Hello everyone, I was diagnosed with pelvic adhesions 5 months ago. My
dr went and did a laparoscopy then and said that he got out what he
could at the time. I had stage 4 adhesions all over my abdomen. He
told me that only thing that saved me from having a hysto was that they
were soft adhesions. He has placed me on lo/orval bcp's for the next
3months and told me to take them staight through, no placebo pills
allowed to see if that helps. well i have been on them for 2 months now
and nothings changed. Could it be that he somehow missed something? I
still have the same pains as before my surgery only not as bad as when I
havbe my cycle b/c the cramping is gone atleast until the end of Oct.
I am only 24 yrs old right now and already am trying to deal with
possible fertility problems as the scarring is so bad my chances have
dropped to 20%. I don't know what to do. I am handling the pain well.
no pain meds taken for wks now. but it's affecting every aspect of my
life again and I don't know if my dr will do anything. He does not know
what caused the adhesions to form. I didn't have any problems until Jan
of this yr. But we know they started to form yrs ago to be this bad.
but he doesn't want to do any more surgery b/c of the scarring aspect.
he told me that if he has to go back in again he will have to remove
something as the scarring will be to great. Can anyone help
