I started having problems with adhesions about 9 years ago, after the birth of my 3 child. I started having swelling in my abdomen, couldn't stand any pressure at all, severe pain. I went to my Gyn and he suggested that we do an exploratory surgery, which we did.

Got in there and ended up having to have a partial hyst. Well 6 months after that I had to go back under and have adhesions removed, yet again another 6 months after that another surgery. Then about 7 months after that here we go again, except this time I requested being sent to a specialist, which I was to make a long story short, I ended up having another surgery to remove both of my ovaries, the dr told me that I had severe endo, fibroid tumors, my ovaries were full of cysts, and that all my insides were attached to the lining of my stomach wall with adhesions. Well for about 4-5 years now I have been doing good, until about August of 05.

The pain has started again, along with the swelling, the constipation, and discomfort of clothing and anything touching my abdomen. I called my Dr(the specialist) went to see him this week. He wants to try PT and muscle relaxers. He did some kind of test on my bladder well that was what was wrong,

Now I am taking muscle relaxers both morning and at night, and they aren't making the pain stop!! I don't go back to see until January 06. I don't know if I can handle the pain until then. Has anyone else out there had to go thru PT for this?

If so I would like to know if it seemed to help or not? My Dr is having me drive 1 hour and half for me to go to PT. I would love to find someone to talk to that is going thru what I am going thru. It hurts so much at times that it is hard to function and do the normal of daily living. My doctor told that he thought that since the pain go worse when I was up doing that it could be muscle spasm, er go the muscle relaxers. Well I have been on them a week now and the pain is still unbearable. Anyone have any suggestions.

Thanks, Brandi
