To Gpeach, I am just now joining this site and trying to figure out what is going on with me. I had a C-section in 2/2000 and last month started having pelvic pains, both superficially across my abdominal wall and deep internally very low. I have had every test done, all was normal. My CT scan two weeks ago was normal besides an enlarged uterus. Another symptom I have is that my bladder aches right at the end of urination and for about 30 seconds after. I've been to 12 different doctors and 3 Emergency Room trips because my pain got so severe and I thought it was something urgent. My Primary Care Physician has suggested "adhesions. " Since they found adhesions wrapped around your bladder I wanted to ask you what symptoms you had involving your bladder. I also have a hard time making it through the night. If I don't get up to urinate I begin to feel nauseated. What did your pelvic pain feel like? Any ideas for me.
