Sara your pain in your ribcage could be from your kidney. I'm not sure if your back pain is in the same area behind your ribcage, but if it is, that is definitely from your kidney. You could have adhesions in that area as well. I did. I have the same pain on my right side due to adhesions. My whole right side is covered with adhesions. My GYN gave me a lapascope in 1998 and I had endo so bad and it grew into my bowel. I had to have a complete hysterectomy. I have been in and out of the ER and OR ever since with obstructions of the bowel and problems with my kidney. The pain is unbearable! I barely sleep and barely eat. There is a good DR in California his name is Dr Cook. I might be fling there in Jan for treatment. Joan In a message dated 10/17/2010 12:54:57 A.M.
