I cant tell you how glad i am to find this site, i have had adhesion
problems for over 15 years, i have had multiple surgeries due to
adhesions. I am at the point that my surgeon does not want to do any
kind of surgery on me unless it is a emergency, which is ok with me i
really dont want anymore surgeries. The problem is that i live in
constant pain, i see a pain management specialist but all that does is
make me sleepy and slow down my bowels. I need to know if there is
something out there that is non narcotic that i can take that will help
with the daily pain i go through. My surgeon tells me that cutting into
my stomach is like trying to cut through a brick with tissue paper.
Nice....I am so exhausted by having this daily pain. I was recently in
the er with a blockage that passed but I am so scared that anymore
surgeries i may not make it through. Does anyone have any additional
information as to what else i can do....I really need advice - My daily
routine is go to work, come home and use the heating pad on my stomach,
which by the way, does relax the adhesions for a while. But i know that
there is more to life than this and I really would like some advice.
Can anyone steer me towards some help???
