what do adhesions feel like?? 8mos post..not ok..
hey guys..

Thank gd I have you...cause i tell everyone else im great

hope this isnt to long but i dont summarize it well sorry

Ok..since my tah ovs intac nov 25,2002..t.. i have had pelvic pain..
always seemed like two diff pains..one the burning and uti like symptoms of ieewww... 2 an acky like muscle not healed or surical wound not totally healed.ow!!!. its only on my left side right above the incision.

Sceene 2-3
my obgyn said it wasnt the inscision that that was great!!! and that i healed real well. and that swelly belly would be gone by 4 mnths.. didnt happen...OBGYN Says . " gee i cant imagine what is wrong poor you..this is beyound my expertise...." very nice actually.. ok ok,, so then he put me off of short term and forgot to tell me so i was terminated.. couldnt work anyway... im a proper rincess:

Scene ,3,4,,5
dr sent me to urologist 3 times.. horrid man.. told me i was just im 42 he looked 60 hmmmf!!And asked me if I gained weight since our first chat...25lbs by then!!!!

Scenes 5 ---- 9
thrn urogyn... gynuro specialist... 4 drs in all.. the gynurologist ( yes diff from urogyn) diag with itertestial cystitis lovingly called ic )..put on 3 meds including anti/depessive for pain ..amytriptiline...50mg wow!!!! and said the other was probably adhesions and we would deal with them later( btw he doesnt speak english as fluent as i may like)came back in a month..saying pain still there on my side though ic seems more tolerable meds though gave me blurry eyes, major weight gain ( from a 6 to a 12 at 5ft tall!!), loss of focus, memory ect...
and basically like your old drooling mental patient on to much
drugs. he said i'll get use to it.. and the adhesions need to wait for the ic???..ok..

got a major flare up i as in --- oh my god the bladder in on fire... sends me to urogyn..who specializes in ic ( part of same practice???)

... Nice female urogyn..yeah!!!!... very down on ic.(Intersetial cystytis) basically.. u have.. the meds dont really work...cause if they do why do so many have flare ups??? and she's Pgh leading expert.. no warm fuzzy cure all here!!!!

become your own profes..blah..b;lah..blahhh.oh and heres 25 mg of amytripoline..but youll prob take them 2x's a day... Then she says

"BTW!!!!! why is your abdomin so swollen( swelly belly now looks like a ridge sharp enough to repell down) ??? is it still an issue w/the hys ..call back the gynuro.specialist get some pain pills and sched additioal surgery....whew!!!!" 4 meds for a total of 12 pills a day dont think so!!!

sooo i cried in the parking lot ( so glad i dont let hubby come anymore.. then drove home calm and empwered!!!

Any way i quit all the meds but emilron ( suppose to like restore the bladder and doesnt have side effects) and walah... the urinary burn is much better... but the other pain is worse.

especial;ly if i sit in a chair for long periods.. standing up is very..oh my god painful. from a sitting position. .even when i do it by crawling up my thighs like im 110....

anyway.. im really not bellyaching..thrilled to be back among the alert and in less urinary pain..

BUTsisters..big questions..is this .. Does this sound like the type of pain associated with adhesions... been to every site listed but i dont know if this is the same type of pain..if not any ideas???.. been thinking maybe a general surgeon or cosmetologist...

anywall.all who read this long..long thing..thankyou..

I am so sorry you are on the long road. I am two weeks out from having adhesions looked at, and taking out the ovary I had left - and I had the swellign and pain, and the feeling I was crazy and hopeless. Now that the ovary is out I am a new woman. Once in surgery, it was found to be adhered to the pelvic wall and had cysts and bllod all about. Whew! Your story sound familiar - and I woudl look at those ovaries. My Doc said that even if the adhesions reform, it can't get that bad again - it's the ovaries that can really get to hurting.
Hang in there. You've been prayed for.
