I hate the thought of simply "managing" the pain for the rest of my life, but have a feeling that is what it will pretty much be.
I can completely relate to your feeling's about this. But with any luck, they'll figure out a way to keep our adhesions from recurring! One has to think that if they can transplant organs...............

I noticed that you take Lodine - does it make you sick to your stomach when you take it?

I hope you are feeling better soon!

She did say that she felt total hormonal shut-down helps with adhesion pain. I've got that covered since I have no ovaries and no HRT.

Thanks for caring! [/b]
I didn't find it helped me at all. When my pain returned last summer, I kept thinking maybe it was endo and not adhesions, so I stopped using my estrogen patch. I stopped for 2 months until I went completely insane from lack of estrogen and started it again at almost 3 months off. My pain did not change at all. I was thinking if it was endo, it should help my pain if I stop the estrogen. Since it wasn't endo and was adhesions, I can say that it didn't help me living without hormones.
I am glad to hear that the injections seems to be working. That is great news! Will you have to continue to keep getting injections or will this one do it for awhile? Keep up the good work!!!!!! If nothing else, if it helps the hip and back pain, that is something, even if it doesn't help the adhesion pain.

(((Cortney))) - I have taken Lodine 400mg 2x daily for 4 months now. At first it would hurt my stomach if I didn't eat when I took it, but now it doesn't seem to bother me. It is the only NSAID that hasn't caused me problems. Are you taking it?

I have to agree with you. If it takes "managing" until they are able to "fix" it then so be it. And I do believe the future holds a way to "fix."

(((Marian))) - I am sorry that being w/o hormones didn't help you any. I have to say that all together - emotionally and physically- I feel better w/o hormones. I guess that is just another example of how what works for one person may make another miserable. I am always hoping that we each find what works for us. s!

I take the Lodine (400 mg) 3 times a day. And it really upsets my stomach. I have learned that if I take it while I am eating I do ok, though. But if I take it before or even after eating I still end up feeling nauseated. (weird, huh?) First couple of times I took it, I thought I was going to loose my cookies for sure!!! I don't usually react that way to meds. Took my by surprise. But it definately helps keep me from aching, so I'm learning to adjust to the eating thing.

I sure hope they find a way to "fix" us!!! If they find something in you area - send them my way!

Take care!

Isn't it strange how something like that can work for one and not the other? That is why I think no one knows exactly why things happen to us...it just happens.
I am always hoping too that we find what works for us
I am glad that you are feeling a bit better and I pray that it stays that way!
