Response to Danielle - Should I have a hyst for adhesions?

>Dear Danielle,

In 2002, I had a hysterectomy because of severe adhesions, like you, my bladder and uterus were in a mess. Adhesions were caused from c-sections, laps and appendix removal. Unfortunately, I did have the hyst and my situation is worse. I live in daily pain. (I did have two more laps after my hyst and did receive some improvement with my pain but not complete relief, I still suffer daily with pain-more activity equals more pain).

I would never recommed any one to have a hystectomy because of adhesins. For me, it only made the pain worse. Pluse the hormone nightmare isn't fun. Only adds to the complicated situation.

I do understand your pain and I'm sorry for you. Very few people really understand how difficult this is for us who suffer. My suggestion is to treat the pain and to not have the surgery unless it is life threatening. Please know you are not alone in your suffering.
