I could really use some advise from everyone on this list, thank you so much in advance! I had my exploratory laproscopy surgery yesterday, my dr has been great and planned to remove any adhesions and endomstriosis he saw. The good news and the bad news is that he found nothing. He said my inside looked great. Though I am really, really glad to hear that, it also makes me want to cry because I don't know where this pain is coming from or what to do to get it to stop. I have a follow up appointment in 2 weeks. There is a small change that whatever he did in the surgery could help me to feel some better, I sure hope so since I am in a lot of pain now. But I don't know where to go next? My only guesses are something like a bowl obstruction or a food allergy? Are there other diagnosis that were considered for anyone here before it was determined to be adhesions? What else might cause pelvic and abdominal pain? That you so much for any ideas/information you may have...
