My Dr. insisted that I had IBS in tried several different treatments, none of which worked. Eventually I was sent for a laparoscopy which truned into a laparotomy due to interanal bleeding. The report on the op stated that they found massive omental and blowel adhesion to thee right iliac fossa area and the anterior abdominal wall. If anyone could but this in plain english I would be so pleased!. The attacks returned within about a week, and I have been told that I will just have to put up with them as there is nothing else then can do. Yesterday I recorded 32 attacks and 27 the day before. I wake with them and go to sleep with them, the thought of having them for the rest of my life is unbearable to say the least. Someone suggested having acupunture to help with the pain, I have my first appointment on the 5th May, has anyone tried this avenue, I would be delighted to hear from anybody, with any suggestions advice of any sort. Pain killers every four hours every day cannot be the only answer.

Hi Janie this is Jaynie too. I have tried EVERYTHING. For me acupuncture did not reduce my pain but who knows it could work for you ! We are all different. Maybe my therapist wasn't very good. It did make me want to take better care of my self tho ! I didn't crave sugar and ate more vegies. But I hated the needles. I could feel them. Most ppl don't I hear. I have been told the reason I felt the needles is because I am lacking in vitamens and minerals. Who knows ? So good luck Janie. best wishes Jaynie
