Sara I am also very interested in the injection that you receive for adhesions to turn them into gel. Can you get the name of it and forward it to us? I had a Celiac Plexus Block almost 2 weeks ago, and I am still literally going through hell. I do/would not wish this on anyone. All I do is take pain meds, lay here with the heating pad, sleep, take anti nausea meds. I even have been getting up in the middle of the night and taking pain meds. I keep thinking it will be over any time. My optimism is fading away. The Doctor that did the procedure said that the procedure has not caused all of this pain, my adhesions have even though I have never dealt with this type of pain on my right side. So I am confused. The pain gets so bad to where I can't even think straight and have a hard time remembering if or when I have done something. The Doctor that did this sent me a letter letting me know that my Biopsies were fine and at this time he doesn't feel that he can do anything further to help me and to return to my Doctors here in town. I had hoped that I would be a challenge since it is a Learning University Hospital. I know some day for all of us. Thanks for reading this. Cheryl

HI Sara---I found your e-mail very interesting, as it did not involved having surgery, giving more adhesion's and nerve damage, please could you tell me the name of the injection that turns adhesion's into gel, I have never heard of this. Thank you Lou

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.
