If you have insurance, I would start with a GI to rule out hiatal hernia, gallbladder probs, or other gastroinal issues. If they come back with nothing then you could consider that you might have adhesions from your imbylical hernia surgery...which could only be diagnosed through an exploratory laparoscopy...which could cause more adhesions. And there are very few surgeons in the U.S. who are specialized in the removal of adhesions. Most people opt to deal with adhesions till the pain either warrants the need for pain meds or they opt for surgery. How severe adhesions pain is depends on the locale and the organs involved. Some people can have them and not feel alot of pain. Mine involved my bowels and the ovary...and many problems and high pain. I hope your pains do not worsen and you will feel better soon. Wishing you the best. --- Starwing <> wrote: > Hello Everyone,
