abdominal adhesions

Hello! I have just joined hystersisters and am amazed at the information I have found in just 20 short minutes. I had my hysterectomy seven years ago and have never been the same. Pain has been a part of my life for all of these years. Many tests, sugeries, etc. This past year I was diagnosed with IC.

I feel my IC is under control, as does one of my urologists and that the pain I have now (and probably all along is due to adhesions)! I feel it in my heart. We know they are there, I believe they have grown and gotton worse over the years.

Has anyone had an experience like this? Is it possible these adhesions can cause this kind of pain?

I look forward to any help/advice you can offer.

Hi there and welcome to Hyster Sisters I'm so sorry that you found us due to chronic pain

While I'm fortunate enough not to have to deal with this problem, there are several of our members, too many, in fact, who are dealing with this monster. Hopefully, they'll be along very soon to share their personal experience.

From everything I've heard about adhesions, they can be very painful and some of our adhesion sufferers do report chronic pain. For additional information on this desease, here's a link to our Resources Directory on Adhesions:


Sending lots s your way and wishing you the best of luck. Hopefully, you'll be getting answers, and relief, in the near future :hug;

Hello and as ((Dany)) said, welcome and we wish we were meeting under happier circumstances!

Well, I am one of those with adhesion issues, which I suppose we can think of as "over healing". I've always been a bit of an overchiever, LOL. Hey, gotta keep my sense of humor or I really would lose it.

Yes, the adhesions cause pain. In my case, I just had some adhesions removed via a laparoscopy in January. I had one long adhesion running from my navel area to my left round ligament. I had a bunch tying my left ovary to my pelvic side wall and I had some around my bladder. I think that's it. Anyway, my doctor said it was "more than enough" to account for the pain I was experiencing and had hoped my pain would subside with the removal of the adhesions. The pain would put me in bed for several hours at a time with darvocet and a heating pad which is not cool to an active person such as myself.

Well, wish I could say the last surgery took care of my pain. That would be a much better story. However, either I grew more adhesions or my seemingly life long sidekick, endo, is back to her old tricks. Either way, I am back in cyclical pain and just had a very rough week.

Good news is that a low dose 25mg of zoloft is helping me to emotionally deal with the pain. In fact I see my doctor tomorrow and will thank him for thinking of this, as it has helped me emotionally.

You take care and keep us posted.
