Patricia, You have my sympathy.  You sound alot like me. The only advise I can give you at this point is have pain management.  I would not get another surgery unless you have a blockage.  I have a pain pump which helps some but I still have alot of pain and digestive issues but you don't get the side affects from taking the oral meds. I hope you can get some relief.

> Hello,
> My name is Patricia and I have been researching trying to find

> My problems first began about 20 years ago to my knowledge, pain, upset
> stomach and all the related issues that adhesions bring. After 10 years

> thought I was crazy because nothing showed to explain the problems I
> began having serious issues with my female parts and went to my OB/GYN
> at that time (since retired) and he told me what he suspected and the
> only way to know was laproscopic surgery. We did this in 2001 only to
> find a serious mess of adhesions and said he wish he had cut me wide
> open. This helped for several years, but I had to undergo 2 more
> surgeries after for an appendectomy and another c-section. A few years
> later my family physician and I determined that the adhesions were back,
> after seeking counsel from a local surgeon and researching other doctors
> to try and get help no one wanted to do anything because they say its a
> losing battle. Everytime we go in it's gonna create more, while I

> I am at a loss as to what to do at this point.
> I am looking for anyone who can help or give me advice on someone to see

> Thank You,
