Re: Can Excercise make adhesions worse?

Hi Fern: Sorry you're hurting. In response to both your posts, yes, exercise can make your pain worse. At least it does mine. An anti-inflammatory helps sometimes. I take a prescription called Arthrotek. And it does help sometimes.

As far as nerve damage or adhesions, I have both and I'm treated for both with nerve blocks and the adhesions are injected with a medicine that is supposed to turn them into gel like substance. It works for me.

If you're not seeing a pain specialist who knows how to treat abdominal pain, you should consider making an appointment with one. The first Dr I saw did nothing but give me tons of painkillers. He didn't address the problem. Now the doctor I'm seeing treats the problems. I still take Hydrocodone but I don't need as much as I used to.

Good luck to you. I hope you find a doctor who can alleviate your pain.
