21 years ago I had a spleenectomy due to a severe car accident. 3 days
ago I spent the night in the hospital because of adhesions that were
caused by this surgery, or so the doctors tell me. And I must say, ALL
of teh symptoms I saw on one of these adhesion links fit me exactly! I
am still recovering, am on the "B.R.A.T." diet and am kind of fearful of
the future. I would like to know if anyone has had this experience
before where such a long period of time passes after the surgery before
they experience symptoms. And I would also like to know if anyone knows
of ways to treat this in order to prevent another episode. I have a
follow up with my doctor this Wednesday, but I have learned over time
that I must research on my own as well and I value the experiences of
others. In addition, I would like to know if anyone has not been told
by their doctors of this possibility after their surgery. I was NEVER
told--at least that I can remember...and frankly I am a little
dissapointed about that!
I appreciate any and all feedback!
