Here goes...I'll give you a brief run down so you'll know history. 80 first vaginal birth, 82 laproscopy diagnostic & DNC, 85 tubal after vaginal birth, 93 appendectomy 3 weeks later diagnostic laproscopy, 96 rolling ball endemetrial ablation after 6 months of bleeding, 97 both tubes removed fluid build up, Feb 98 right ovary removed STUCK to my pelvic bone, after 6 months of "unexplained"((I suggested adhesions from the start)) pain and 5 pcp's and 5 specialist (my gyn and the last one that finally diagnosed adhesions and removed them, a GI, 2 general surgeons, one of which said pulled muscle in the beginning of pain after the other gave me a cortisone IN my abdomen Worse pain than surgery without prescribing any pain meds). On August 18th I had 8 adhesions cut they were way up in my abdomen almost to my ribcage, so no barrier was used. Yet they were attached to my small intestine and colon. Now I'm having the same pain as when the adhesion first started this year. I went for my post-op check up Thursday and was told that he didn't what was causing my pelvic pain most likely muscular-skeletal. He never check the 3 port he made, one of which got infected and he sent me to a local doctor who put me on 500mg Keflex. He gave me Robaxin 750mg and said if they didn't help I needed to see a neurosurgeon and maybe physical therapy. The present adhesion pain is like it started after surgery in Feb this year, not bad yet but the same. He told me before surgery if it came back I needed to try pain management and I agreed after I heard how it helped people on here. I am lost and don't where else to turn I traveled 100 miles to find a doctor who even believed I had adhesions in the first place. I know I not crazy, but it sure is hard to accept sometime. I start back to work Monday and I'm not sure how long I'll be able to keep it up the Robaxin isn't helping with the pelvic pain. ANY ADVICE???? I'm think I am going crazy, but I know better.
