Hi over there!!

I have no answers for you but I do have questions. How were your adhesions diagnosed? What does it feel like?

For you, what is the difference between your adhesion pain and your healing pain ? It's so hard to determine at this stage what is still surgery pain and what is more perhaps endo or adhesions or intestinal.

I'm taking Motrin..it's over the counter for swelling and fever. It sounds like you're on a script... something better.

I hope you get some good answers here.

My Experience

Hi There! It will be 3yrs. 2/05 since my surgery. I had severe endo & fibroids. I was taking a very low dose of NHRT, since I was only 36yrs. old. I was concerned about other issues being in menopause. Unfortunately I had to stop 1yr. ago Dr. felt based on my symptoms of pain (Pelvic & when had bowel movements) that this could be scar tissue or endo flare-up due to the estrogen I was taking. I went on Black cohosh, Flaxseed oil, advil(when needed), also took the enzyme (Protease on empty stomach) I read how it works on inflammation (It really helped!!!). Now since my Dr. consisders me post-menopausal,and not having alot of the night sweats,hot flashes suggested I stop the black cohosh.

I really feel getting off the NHRT & taking the mentioned supplements really helped!

Take Care,
Denise

re reply on scar tissue to maralyn

Hi, thanks for replying to my question of scar tissue, adehsions, I suppose! Because I was not yet ready to go back to work, I saw my consultant at the hospital, and he said that I had some scar tissue still healing. My own doctor, a few weeks later gave me Voltarol, which is a strong anti inflamatory drug used here in the Uk. It is also a pain killer.

The condition feels like discomfort , soreness in the tummy area, also in the ovary area. Also I have a swelled tummy too, and a dragging feeling when emptying the bladder, like a spasm at the close of flow of urine.

I have just heard today, that a water test given a week ago is showing an elevated level of white blood cell, although not showing infection. I am just off to repeat the test!!!!

The healing pain, I found to be more of an ache really. I hope this helps you. Thank you for replying to my question. I have added you to my buddy list, hope that is ok. I am new to this site and not yet found my way around it!!!! Best wishes, Barbara, celtic lady!!!!!

scar tissue & inflammation

Hi girl's! I replied to a post giving some suggestions from my own experience. I was using enzyme therapy - protease , which work wonders!! I really helped my physically recovery. Was told about this by a Pharmacist who specializes in holistic. The product was called REPAIR(Enzymedica), i bought @ the health food store.

I hope you have success w/this.

Hi Ladies, I must add a note of caution here. Please check with your doctor before using any OTC products. Even from health food stores. While some are safe, others can interact with medications you might be taking. Each of us are different, so check first.
