Thank you for your email and forum responses! I have never heard the
word endo used in my past surgeries. My husband is on vacation this
week and we plan on visiting the hospital to attain my surgery records.
They will tell me more. My only memory of the adhesion surgeries was
that my repro. organs were wrapped with coadhesive type adh. Each
surgery I lost another part of an ovary or more extensive damage was
done to other organs. Each cycle seemed to increase the pain
dramatically. Finally...the hysterectomy option was proposed.
Currently...can anyone share the place that exercise plays with
adhesions? Due to being out of shape and over weight...I joined a health
club and began a very conservative work out program. Walking, machines,
swimming. It felt wonderful but then soon after, I found myself in this
adhesion flare up condition. I have hesitated to share my health club
activites because I don't want the doctors to poo-poo me off with a
"pulled muscle" dx. I certainly know the difference between muscle and
adhesion problems. Does anyone else need to curtail execise regime due
to adhesions? This time around I have an uncomfortable sensation in my
abdomen: I feel like my corset (muscles in my abdomen) is alternating
between tied and untied. Everything feels loose, wavy, unconnected.
Then it will tighten, producing a stabbing, strangle hold of intense
pain. Either I don't remember this from before or this is something
entirely different...please let me know if this is common. Thank you
for your help and support!
