i had back surgery recently and was made to stop ALL anti-inflamatories for 7 days prior to surgery (my hysto was back in the stone age, when they didn't know about the bleeding problems).
I was told that it takes at least 7 days for your blood to go back to normal as far as clotting goes (the anti-imflams make it hard to clot).

hope this helps a little,

has ANYONE had good luck with adhesion removal surgery???

I dont' know if my pain is caused from adhesions, the return of endo or what. I have abdominal pain, like cramps severe pain on my left side where my ovary used to be, pain in my hips and back and down my legs and pain with intercourse . It will last a week or two and just when I'm ready to go back to the gyno, it stops. My gyno put me on Celebrex for the pain. I've been on it almost a year now. It seems to help. Some of the sisters have suggested a hormonal imbalance. My doctor, like yours told me that it might just go away. I don't think they really know anything. They just keep guessing. Believe it or not, I had a friend go to a gyno in a large city and he told her the they don't do laser surgery for endo any more. When she asked what he suggested to treat her endo, he said she would just have to live with it!
Anyway, my doctor did tell me about a doctor in Florida who is supposed to be able to get endo at the root. I don't remember the name, but he was at Celebration Hospital. Florida is a long way from where I am, so I haven't look into this seriously, but it's an option that is out there. Good luck to us all.

has ANYONE had good luck with adhesion removal surgery???

I was all set to pack my bags and go out of state to a pelvic pain specialist. Then I got cold feet. Today, I called my urogyn and consented to a diagnostic laparoscopy. A month ago he told me that he doesn't expect to find anything, including adhesions. I started to forget the lap but the more I thought about it (and discussed with my husband) the more we want to know "what's in there". To me, it's like taking your car to the mechanic and he never opens the hood. I really think I have an entrapped nerve since I have so much neuropathy (burning and numbness). I read on another site that Pudendal Nerve Entrapment is a possibility--the main symptom is severe pain with sitting and driving. I have complained (loudly!) of this for 4 years!!!! How many men would tolerate this much pain, for so long???? None of our doctors would!! I am not going to give up until I get a diagnosis and treatment. If he finds adhesions, I am going to say "I told you so"!!! If nothing, I will need a shrink!!!ha How long does it take to "recover" from a lap?

do an internet search on "Celebrex adhesions" it looks like there is quite a bit there indicating that Celebrex right after surgery can reduce adhesions.

Good Luck & Take Care!

Aunty Ann: I would go ahead with the Lap. It will tell you what none of the other tests are able. A lot of drs. won't address adheasions as a real medical problem. I would just like to give them our pain for a DAY! Iwent to so many docs, and finally a General surgeon told me to go back to my GYN and ask for a Lap. I did, surgery on 10/10/06 and for the most part my pain has been relieved. Other problems there, causing some stuff now. but if you read any of my other posts you'll see. But for me having the adhesions removed was best. Good Luck, and hoping you will feel better soon.

Well, from a fresh perspective (I just got back from the having mine 12 hrs. ago), the pain isn't absolutely unbearable... coughing/sneezing isn't fun, though. Most healing is done by 2 weeks... no intercourse for 4 weeks.
If you fold a towel and hold it firmly over your abdomen when you sit, stand, cough, sneeze, it helps...
Absolute best of luck to you... keep us posted!

I posted the results of the surgery in Road Less Traveled... I was completely clean... no adhesions - no endo... I was shocked. It is all nerve pain... sooooooooo, anyone here with chronic nerve pain, if you have a second or two, would you take a peek at my post and give me your ? I feel like I'm up the creek and I've never seen a paddle in my life.

Prayers for the relief we all need and s for everyone here... Your HysterSister in crime,

The nurse in my doctors office led me to believe that I would have the lap on a Wednesday and be able to tolerate a 2 hour flight home on Friday. I have a very low pain tolrance so they will probably find me doubled up in my seat!! the cocktails will be tempting!!
I anticipate a "clean" lap also-had 2 urogyns predict that my chronic pelvic pain is due to nerve pain. OK, then let's address how we are going to interrupt that signal! If it takes injections, ok, if a neuro-stimulator is needed-OK--let' do SOMETHING-NOW!!! Do I sound impatient?? Actually I have lived with this way too long-I am ready to get well! My lap is scheduled for March 15....seems a long way.
Keep me posted on your lap-recuperation. I'll pary for your speedy recovery!!!

((txfriend)) Poor babe... I know how ya feel, but hang in there... you're gonna be alright, pal! Make sure they've got you good and medicated so you'll be comfortable on your way home on the plane and you should do well (as long as someone is with you, of course... wheelchair to the gate/car/etc. is going to be a priority).

I'm a "RIGHT NOW" kind of gal, too... they couldn't schedule the procedure fast enough. But it's good to have an active interest in your health and to WANT to get "fixed", you know? Now, I'm looking forward to finding the right treatment for the nerve pain... and thanks to the support I get from people like you and the other awesome, strong, admirable women on this board, I won't be giving up!

Let's keep in touch, TX... You are a great gal & you're going to do fine on the 15th - and I'll be thinking of you!

Lots of s

Dear SlapmyGenie-How many people do we know who would take the time to write such sweet, encouraging notes to others-within a few days of their own surgery??!! I can not tell you how much I appreciate your message. After going for so long with only immediate family to ventilate to...it's a relief to have a listening ear from those who truly have "been there". I'm confident that I am getting closer to an answer--hopefully one that is treatable. If not, the pain management doctor better get his door open!! Either way, I thank all of you women for sharing your personal stories. I'm an only-child and don't have a sister to confide in--now, I do!!!! Hyster-sisters!!!
