Yes, you definatly have adhesions!!!! Especially because of the TUGGING
and the Severe STABBING pain. That is total nonsense that adhesions do
not cause that much trouble.My god, how can anyone in the medical field
say that !!!!
If a person has 5 inch width adhesions, growing and growing and
strangling organs, is this not a lot of trouble??? Mine were so bad, my
bowel was almost completely strangled, had maybe 1/2 inch left that was
not strangled yet!! and the pain is unbearable...worse than labor......,
and please remember no test's out there will show adhesions, as they are
like saran wrap, and blend right in with organ pictures on either MRI or
CT Scan, this is why no one can get a diagnosis!!!! as there are no
solid based tests out there.But tugging and stabbing is a definate
sign!!!For sure.,and know that again there are no barriers available in
Canada or US that stops them from growing again.Need to go to Germany,I
just returned, and pain free after 6 years of adhesion hell .
