Thank you for the advice- it really did seem like the massage therapy was just plain hurting without making anything better. I saw my OB on Friday and we have scheduled a laproscopic surgery for September 9th. Hopefully they will see what is going on and remove any problems. I really think that I have a combination of adhesions and endometriosis, but this is all new to me so I am not sure. I just want the pain to stop so I can enjoy a normal life with my new son!
