Hello everyone, I saw my gyn today and he told me that he is very frustrated with the pain being back so severe so soon after my last surgery{6 weeks ago}He now wants me to see the G I Dr. again to rule out anything with the bowel and intestines,And is sending me to a urologist and chronic pain specialist.The problem now is getting the referrals from my primary care physician.I called them today to ask for the referrals and told them that if there was a problem I would like to talk to my P C .THe triage nurse called me back a short time later and ask me who was sending me to these specialist and why? I told her what is going on and she told me that my gyn needs to send them a note telling them Why he wants me to see these Drs.,THen they would decide if I needed to see all of them.I have to wonder what gives them the right to question what a Dr. wants done? The last time I needed a referral they gave me a big run a round.You would think I was asking for something personnal of thiers.I did get the report from the last surgery which showed thin filmy adhesions tenting the bowel and dragging it downward the descending colon.There were multiple adhesions of the epiploic appendages and of the sigmoid colon tenting this up and fixing it anteriorly and then these adhesions went down the pelvic brim around posterior to the area of the symphysis and up to the area of the right ovary .No wonder I was in such pain.My gyn was very sympathic.He told me he wished he had a magic pill that would take away all the pain.Any advice on going to any of these Drs. would be appreciatted. Thanks, Peggy
