Hello everyone. I am new at this whole internet thing....was very suprised to find so much info out there on a problem I had thought was mine. I am 32 yo, hx of pid & gallbladder surgery. I was diagnosed with p.a. 4 years ago when my ob/gyn told me that they are so extensive that my only option is hysterectomy. One tube and ovary are adhered to my bowel, the other tube and ovary are "totally obliterated". After finding mucous (sp)and blood in my stool and having increased bloating and pain, I went to the doctor yesterday and he has blown me off and sent me to a gastro. I guess a gastro could be helpful in determining if there is any obstruction. I am bummed. The ob/gyn says that there is a good chance of a colostomy if he tried to remove the adhesions from my bowels. Doesn't sound like fun to me. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Has anyone else been told that hysterectomy is the only option?
