Post-op Adhesion Surgery

I saw that your surgery was 2 years ago. So in the 1 1/2 years since your lap for adhesions, how are you doing? Was it successful?
I suffer badly enough that I can't exercise, stretch too hard, lay on my stomach, run, etc.. It is all too painful for my abdomen. I know my bladder is effected as well.

What kind of surgeon did you have. Was it your GYNO who did adhesion removal well?

Need advice!

I had a complete hysterectomy 2/03 and have suffered with an entrapped ilioinguinal nerve and suspected adhesions for the last year. I was given injections of cortisone and sarapin in my hip. In the last week, my pain around my intestines has increased. My Doctor said that I will have a problem finding a surgeon unless I have a bowel obstruction. Another Doctor said that adhesion surgery will only last a short time before the problem returns and could be worst. I don't know what to do. Suffer and exercise or Lap. surgery?

Post-op Adhesions

Hello Again Ladys,

Had my lap surgery Tues(8-3-04) and things went pretty well. Dr. found endo on the cervix and adhesions attaching the colon to the pelvic wall. Four days post-op I feel about the same as pre-op but it has only been 4 days. Dr. says if I'm not majorly improved in 6 to 8 wks. he wants to take the cervix vaginally. I don't want another surgery peroid but we will have to see. Right now I'm taking it very easy and keeping the positive thoughts flowing.

Thanks for all the support!

I'm curious, how did they determine you had an entrapped ilioinguial nerve and was this a result of the hyst. surgery?
What your Dr. says doesn't quite make sense to me. There has to be a solution. I know it is very frustrating not getting the help you need. Don't give up. Things can be better!

Laparotomy vs. laparoscopy

Hi, I'm responding to the question about whether anyone knows a sister who had to have a laparotomy instead of a laparoscopy for adhesion removal. That was my situation. I had my hyst in January '03 and began to feel tugging pain very soon after my surgery. I did have a lot of internal bleeding after my surgery and was told this can increase the chances of adhesions because blood acts as an irritant to tissues, particularly when those tissues are basically soaking in it. In any event, I had follow-up adhesion surgery in July '03, which was intended to be laparoscopic. Because the adhesions were so densely connected to my bowels, my gynecologist opted to cut again for fear she would injure the bowel with the laser. While I no longer feel the tug that was my colon attached to my abdominal wall, I do have pain. I'm not opting for more surgery at this time - - it will only make it worse. My gynecologist did tell me that just because I've had an adhesion surgery via laparotomy, that doesn't preclude me from be a candidate for laparoscopic surgery down the road. My gynecologist is wonderful but she is not an adhesion specialist. If I have surgery again, it will be with someone who specializes in the cutting of scar tissue. In adhesion surgery, there are lots of other factors at play other than just having the surgery laparoscopically. For instance, how much water is used in flushing the pelvic cavity during the time of surgery; what type of gloves are used in handling the tissues; if the surgery is done laparoscopically, what temperature is the gas used in insufflate the abdomen, etc. Anyway, as Judy stated, it's best to find an expert if you feel you must have surgery now. Hope this helps!!
