Chronic Pelvic Pain Due To Adhesions

I'm so glad I found this forum. I have had adhesions for almost 20 years. I have had a hysterectomy in 93 due to endometriosis. I had more adhesions removed that same year during an appendectomy. I had adhesions removed again in 2004 when I had my gallbladder removed. The adhesions that time were in my chest. My surgeon said I also had them in my lower abdomen and didn't remove those since they were causing no problems at that time. I have had the excruciating pain in my lower abs for over 8 months now. I have ct scans, mri, and ultrasounds. They showed nothing at all. I keep telling my doctor that it is adhesions. She tells me there is nothing to be done and said surgeons won't do anything about it either. She put me darvacet for the pain, which she said she really didn't want to do since they adhesions can come back. After reading about it online I know that there is the right kind of help for this. I cannot find any surgeons in Lubbock, Texas that are specialists in this. I have become pretty much bedridden. I can't work, or go anywhere anymore. I have a 9mo grandson that I can't even pick up or play with. My doctor even suggested getting epidurals. I'm like, why would anyone want to go through that over and over. Why would she want anyone to. On the meds all I can do is sleep. I basically cannot function in life anymore. Is there a way to find specialist for this, I have looked everywhere online. I would appreciate anyone's advice.

Sincerly, Sherry
