I do not remember the contractions, I did not have hard label, I was csection. But the tightening in the abdomen is akmost constant! I use the work very constricting, and that is when I cannot get up from sitting, and I pulled side ways to get in the car tonight, and it hurt really bad to twist the way I did. I also get sharp pulling and small stabbing pains that just are there when ever, they pop up at any time, since the neurotin, seem that it may be helping that alittle, makes it easier to do things. Let me know how your appt. goes, please I am afraid to ask about one, I am afraid the pcp will think I am crazy! But I think the biggest problem with me was that transverse colon had stuck to the pelvic floor, and suppooesed to ne across your navel, also extensive adhesions tho, on all the loops of small bowel.

Talk to you soon!
