I've had surgery on my female organs twice. After the first surgery, I had a gangrenous obstruction caused by adhesions. A foot of my intestines were removed. After six months, I had swelling, back pain and trouble eliminating. I watch my diet carefully. Four years ago, I had a tumor growing off of my right ovary. The tumor was large and attached to my bowel and my bladder. The Surgeon was surprised at the adhesions I had. It took the surgeons two hours to get to the tumor as they had to remove adhesions first. The tumor was benign. I am back suffering more than ever with back pain, swelling and problems with elimination. I know of no one who has adhesions. This is a daily chronic problem and at times it goes from bad to worse. It bothers me to sit for long periods of time. Please e-mail me if anyone is going trough this as its hard to deal with alone. Is there any medication I can take to relieve some of these symptom's?
