Hi Stacy, Yes they can come back that soon! Your story sounds alot like mine. I have had 13 going in for 14th next week. I started with Endo. then c-section then total hyst. and then adhesions..... I have had 4 to take out the adhesions since my Hyst. in 2004. I have had 2 just this year. The first one was in Nov. '06 then after having 2 surgiries for abcess and omentum that had died I was in extream pain for a year even going to pain management and being on the max. amount of methodone and being so out of it that I couldn't function and still in major pain I finaly talked my Dr. into doing a ct scan. They saw that I had a hernia so I got a new surgen and when he went in to fix it found out that I had been wide open from just under the skin all the way through! This was from my belly button down to my pelvic area! I also had masive amounts of adhesions agian. Well, that was in Jan. 24th and June 17th he went back in and I was full of them agian! So yes they can! Oh yes and they are back and have to go back in agian! I have tried 3 nerve blocks in the last 2 months and they haven't done any good at all!! One spot hurts worse now than before the nerve block. Sorry so long! If you have any other questions let me know.
