Re: lesions attached my uterus to the abdominal wall

HI! I too had severe pain because my uterus was attached to my abdominal wall by a very thick adhesion, right where my c-section incision was. I have endometriosis and have had severed pain for years. I have tried everything under the sun, just about. I would have severe pain almost all of the time,I was very tired, weak, irritable, depressed, dizzy sometimes, no sex drive, anxious, etc...Sometimes the pain is sharp, other a dull irritating pain that drives you crazy. No one understood what I was going through, which didn't help my state of mind. What I ended up doing was having my uterus removed. While that helped a little, I continued to have pain that grew into severe pain again, just 3 years later. This past summer I ended up having my ovaries removed, adhesions removed, and a bowel re-sectioning. The doctor I see now is remarkable. He is a pelvic pain specialist and is developing a robot that assists in doing surgery, laparoscopically, to eliminate to make deep incisions, thus aiding in decreasing adhesions. He knows, by the patients he sees, the havoc adhesions can wreak. I am so grateful I have him. Since then I have been doing much better. I was pain free, well as far as the endo and adhesions for quite some time. The only pain I was having was due to healing, which I started physical therapy for. I hadn't been pain free in YEARS. It felt wonderful. The pain has slowly been returning which is upsetting, considering all that I went through this past summer. (I was an inpatient for 11 days, had numerous test, lost 25 lbs-I'm only 4'8"-etc). I am trying to stay positive and know that all I can do is the best that I can. Keep my chin up and know that it's possible to feel better, and at least I had it for a little while. My only concern is that when my current pain meds run out, no one will give me anymore strong enough. The goal, before the surgery, was to wean me off of narcotics, to not be on them too long. However, they are the only thing that gives me any pain relief. I hadn't needed them for awhile. Luckily, I had some left from my post-op recovery, but they may run out soon. I'm trying not to use them, rationing them, even cutting them in half. I'm kind of scared at what will happen. I don't want to be on them, I don't want to get addicted, but I can't go through not having anything for the pain again. I went through that before and ended up severely depressed. I know I'm carrying on about me and I'm sorry, I emailed you back with the intentions of trying to give you any help I can. As for other symptoms due to the major adhesions, I have experienced painful intercourse, back pain, painful urination, painful bowel movements, rectal bleeding, constipation, pain so severe I can't get out of bed, pain from my thighs up to my ribs, and I'm sure more, there is just too much to think about. Being on antidepressants has helped. I also have anti-anxiety medication that I use when needed. Please email me anytime, I will be any help that I can. Take care.
