Physical Therapy/Myofascial Pain

Hi all.
I had my hyst in May of 2004 (kept my ovaries) and I have been experiencing pain on my left side (in the hip area) and also in my low back and with intercourse. My gyn recommended that I see a PT that specializes in pelvic pain and scar restrictions. My gyn thinks that I have an issue with scar tissue and myofascial pain.

I am SCARED to death of this!! I have a real issue with someone else hurting me.

My 1st appointment is tomorrow, can anyone tell me what to expect?

Any info would be appreciated.

Hi Dana!

I'm sorry to hear that you are still having problems! I have not personally seen a PT for my residual issues - but know there are many sisters that have. I'm sure they will be along shortly to offer their insight!

I hope everything works out for you! Take care of yourself! Please keep us posted...

I haven't seen a PT either but am curious to see the response you get to this. I am in PM for Chronic Myofascial Pain, adhesions and SI joint dysfuction.

Physical Therapy/Myofascial Pain

I am sorry to hear that you are having these issues. You can see from my sig line that I can relate. I went to PT for the myofascial pain they said I had...all I know is that my adhesion pain had returned and my pelvic floor muscles were not working hardly at all. I saw her for 12 visits. The first few visits were painful as they have to assess your condition, but after that it is mostly learning exercises. It did not help my pain (cause mine is adhesion pain) but it did help my pelvic floor muscles to get working again, which made me decide to go in the first place. I noticed a big difference in that after pool therapy/exercise. Mine was so bad, the PT put electrodes on my crotch so to speak the first visit and asked me to contract them---they did not even register ! At my last visit those suckers were spiking up big there is a benefit even if your pain does not originate from that. After a hyst, I think all women should have that therapy. Good luck to you and please keep us updated on your progress.

Hi all.
I had my first appt with my PT today. It went alright. She did alot of pushing and pulling on my hyst scars and on the muscles in my hips.

She says that she can help with the kind of pain that I am having but I may still require more surgery down the road to deal with my adhesions and the ovary that is still bothering me.

I've had PT from a myofascial bodyworker for the past year, twice a month. For me it is extremely painful as she works on me yet so worth it as the results are dramatic. I can do so many things I could not do before I began seeing her. I will continue until all my adhesions are stretched and hope to avoid lysis surgery. Good luck!

Physical Therapy/Myofascial Pain

I have had myofascial release once for adhesion pain in my left pelvis. It was hell afterward for a few days. Immediately after I was very nauseated and hurt like the devil for those few days. I am not sure if it really helped or not, but will probably try it again because there just aren't that many other options. When I asked my surgeon if this would help he said it wouldn't because my adhesions are on the massage therapist disagrees with that, however. It's worth a try and the pain from it was not so bad I won't do it again.
