We are May 8th, so you had your surgery today, i hope everything went fine. Just to let you know that i've been having endometriosis and adhesions for fifteen years. The last operation was in 1996. My pain is mainly in my belly, around the liver area but i think it's my small intestine, sometimes under the rib cage, my back, near my rectum and i have painful intercourse. I've had period of partial blockage with vomiting, headache and urticaria. I have to be very careful with the food i eat: Small portions, a lot of vegetables and fruit, no fat. I drink a lot of water, take colace as a laxative, take long walks and hope that it won't hurt and block. Well, i hope you will be pain free after your operation. Odette.
