Yes, I know that feeling all too well. My sympathies to you. For me, that was a feeling that I would get suddenly, and then I couldn't do anything but curl up in a ball for hours.

Have you tried any medication that relaxes the intestines? I sometimes wonder if the adhesions are pulling on the intestines causing them to go into spasm. Maybe if you could prevent the spasms, the pain would lessen.

Yes, this seems vitally important for all to know. Right now my pain is relatively infrequent, so I am not considering any surgery at this time.
