Yeah I can relate to that story as after having an open hernia repair with mesh was win the adhesion's took over. A foreign substance in my body and the adhesion's took off like a wild fire. The last surgery I had was January 31 , 2008 I have done my best to stay away from the ER but I would like to get what ever is going on fixed so I don't put my self in a bad position. About 8 weeks after that surgery I woke up screaming from pain now as well in my left pelvis. I still have it and it goes on and off like a switch, it just hurts so bad and I feel like I might die and being alive is important to me. When the hardest pain is threw I have a soreness and throbing, aching feeling that is painful for hours .. Love to all who suffer with me and lives with a person that is hurting on a daily basis I think we should never be silent and demand some thing to help us!!!
