I haven't been on in a while. I had a TAH in Nov 2007 and only had about 6 months of being pain free before it all started up again.
Things have been pretty awful for the past year. I have had chronic pelvic pain and have been on Oxycodone for most of that time. Taking up to 12 a day for the pain and it was only taking the edge off. Went to see a specilaist who decided to operate and see what was causing the pain. My surgery was to be on Sept 21st but was bumped up due to a cancellation (Yay me)
So what I found out when I woke up was that my bowel had been kidnapped by the scar tissue and adhesions and they gave it a new home..IN MY PELVIS. Yep, my bowel was hanging out in my pelvis. This was the reason I looked pregnant and my tummy would get hard as heck when I had to have a bowel movement (sorry if TMI).
So, I am home..still bloated, in a bit of pain but hopeful that this has fixed me up and I can be my old self again. Not back to normal cause that I never was but just to be my crazy old self instead of a doped up pain ridden zombie would be wonderful.
Just wanted to let you all know of "another" thing that can happen after a hyst and what a miserable thing scar tissue and adhesions can be.
If you have any questions at all, please write. I won't be doing much the next 2 weeks!
