Lesa, I am new to this site, my PCP thinks my pain is related to adhesions from a c-section 2 years ago. Two days ago my OB told me that adhesions would not cause the pain I have. She didn't have any other diagnosis for me. My pain is very superficial. I have a burning feeling across my lower abdomen, sometimes up to my belly button and in my groin area. It feels as though it is right under the skin. Nothing has shown up on any tests. One ER doctor gave me a cortisone shot at the "bikini line." Nothing has worked, except a morphine shot from another ER doctor. Have you or anyone else had symptoms like this? Julie Johns

Mary Ann, Welcome! You sound like so many of us...the doctor who told you adhesions don't cause pain should be hung! It is SO irritating to hear those kind of things. I have tried so many things over the years to try and help my pain. One doctor shot hydrocortisone into my abdomen, it didn't work, one tried giving me anti-inflammatories which didn't work either. More surgery is only a temporary help and if often the cause of a much worse situation. I am currently on pain pills (vicodin es, 4 times a day, everyday) and just keeping as positive of an attitude as I can. All of us here have different ways to deal with our day to day pain. We have to, we really have no alternative at this time that's 100%. Take care, Lesa
