So have any doctors had any suggestions as to what the right-sided rib pain is? I don't think it will ever go away and nothing shows on any ct scans, etc. It has ruined my life. When Drs. Reich and Redan did the adhesiolysis they said they didn't see any adhesions in this area, which is what I thought was the worst of my pain, only to awake from my surgery with the pain in this area even worse than before the surgery. My Pain Specialist tried treating it as nerve damage and prescribed a pain patch. He said if it was nerve damage the patch would help with the pain, but the patch didn't help so he said it must be adhesions. No one knows, and it seems I will have to live with this the rest of my life. Then there is the whole abdominal pain that I deal with also which I said I get pain in the vaginal and rectal area along with lower back pain. I feel stuck between a rock and a hard place, as the saying goes.
Jayne, how do you deal with this, pain management? Are you going to continue with pain management the rest of your life, or have you thought of any alternative methods?
