Hi Sherry:

Do they know why your back hurts? This is what I have now and I don't know if its related to the adhesions or another problem. When my problem first started 2 years ago everyone asked me about my back. I had no back pain then. Now that I have back pain, no one seems interested. My pcp insists its my bowels (he isn't any more specific than that) The problem is that he sends me to specialists, including 2 GI docs who says it is NOT my bowels, and then doesn't believe them. The colo-rectal guy says it could be my joints (ie back or hip) The gyn says it is not gyn and probably not adhesions. I'm taking 600 mg ibuprofen 3 times per day and it is working fairly well, but I know its still there in the background. I'm getting a bit angry and seriously considering switching pcps.
