I have had 8 abdominal surgries since I was 16, I'm now 32. I was dignosed with Endo. at 16 had it since I was 12. I had 4 laporoscopies for that. I had a C-section in 2002, Hysterectomy in 2004, Had another Lap. in Nov. '06 and found many many adhesions. My bowel was stuck to vaginal cuff with very thick adheions over it. Dr. said that the adhesions were very thick and hard to cut. A month later went to ER and found that I had a intra-abdominal abcess. I had to have a Laporotmy in Dec.'06. When they got in had 3 abcess and 2 spots of the omentum dead. Jan. '07 went to ER and had another abcess. Was admited for 4 days why they did another minor surgry to drain it. Well, I now have adhesions agian worse than ever. I go atleast 5 days with no bowel movements. I'm in painmanagement now, wich does help to a point. My pain on the famos pain scale is at 9 with the pain meds. Without them it's at what I call 20 out of 10! I have lost all of my friends because of this. " I bring everyone down because I'm in pain so I say" " I just want attention" Well, no I just want someone to understand how it feels when you are in so much pain you can't get out of bed! I didn't ask for all of this, and would trade it for anything! I can't find any support groups in my area! I just need to talk with people that do understand! Thank you for leting me get this out!
