All messed up!

I have had multiple problems since I have been a teen. I am 28 now, and it keeps going. I have had endo(2 surgeries for that), hysterectomy, and 2 oopharectomy's. Now I have back pain which is due to degenerative disc. Had nerve blocks, facet blocks, esi's, a discogram, and still no solution to the problem. I am beginning to think that there is more to it. Something else has got to be going on. I think adhesions, or endo could be some of the problem, but I am not sure. Anyone have any advice? I have been having bladder problems and bowel problems. It will be nice to get any advice from you ladies. Thanks!

Hi PH9603

I am having severe bowel and bladder issues. I developed this right after my hyst. I've had 2 lapros and I do not have any endo or adhesions causing my problems. When I had my anterior repair and tvt done 4 weeks ago my back went out during surgery. I have had back problems for a long time. I have been to so many dr's trying to figure out what makes it so hard for me to have a bm. It caused me to get a rectocele and enterocele. After my back went out I had a MRI while in the hospital. This is when I learnt I have degenerative disc disease. I have a protruding disc, herniated disc, narrowing of the spinal canal, arthritis. The dura sac is also pushing on the nerve sleeves and into the neural foramen. My Gyn is convinced this is exactly what is causing my bowel and bladder issues. I have a consultation withthe neuro surgeon in the morning(Fri).
Here is the site where I am going to be treated. It has alot of good information. It also mentions bowel and bladder complications. This can be a serious complication associated with the nerves being pushed on by disc and other things. have to read through it real good, but it does mention these issues. I will see what my dr. has to say tomorrow. I also found out yesterday by a xray report that I have DDD in my cervical neck too. My GP had ordered those xrays, but I plan on following up with Mayfield.
I hope this site helps to answer some of your questions.
PM or email me anytime

Hi there, I'm so sorry you've been having such a hard time

While I do not have issues with adhesions or endo, far too many Road Dwellers do. Hopefully, they'll come along soon with some insight for you.

In the meantime, here are links to valuable resources on Endo and Ahesions. Click here for Adhesion Resources Library and click here for Endo Resources Library.
