Hello there. A little over a month ago I had a laporoscopy because of severe pelvic pain I have had for YEARS. My doctor thought it was endometeriosis but after performing the surgery he said it wasn't. That I had adhesions from when I had an emergency appendectemy when I was 4 years old (I am 27 now) I also have IC. I am new to this whole adhesion thing, haha, I too thought it was endometeriosis and was prepared for that, did extensive research and was ready to deal with that. I feel as if I know nothing about adhesions. My dr said they can grow that common??? I have been feeling A LOT better since they had been removed but I am now having a pain on my left side I had before surgery. It has taken me 15 years & numerous doctors to finally find out what was causing my pain. No one ever looked at my history and thought,"oh she had previous surgery could be adhesions!" Basically, I have no idea how to deal with this...are there specialists that deal specifically with adhesions??? Any help is greatly appreciated!
