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

Please don't feel like a whimp! There are many of us
out here that have pain with these things, and my
Dr. said that it is not how many adhesions you have
but where they, if you have adhesions to the cuff and
the bowel, I can assure you that the nerves around
in the vagina and rectum would be sure to give you pain. I have never had pain in the abdominal area, up
high, but all my pain is in the vagina and rectum area,
I am sure that I have adhesions in that area. I haven't
read your previous posts, but where has your pain been? I have read a lot about adhesions and almost
everytime I find a article, it says that many Dr.s don't
believe women experience pain with adhesions, but
that is a crock! I also believe that they cause inflammation.

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

Hi Sit,
My pain has mainly focused on my left side but since the op. I have had bladder problems for which I am seeing a uro-gynae and,also, I've complainded of a 'funny' feeling in the vagina just as if someone has leeft something inside or like a mis-placed tampon.The gynae. has just examined me internally a couple of times and said that he can't find anything. I quote 'I'll have a look to see if I've left my watch in there' now I'm wondering if the feeling is coming from the bowel pressing on the top of the vagina.This morning I just feel so rough and sore and my stomach is more bruised than after the hyst. don't know if I can face more surgery but can't carry on with the pain either.
Take Care,

Have you been checked for an enterocele? When I had
that it felt like something was stuck up in my vagina,
or like a baby's head in there. It took 3 yrs for someone
to find it, and it took a pelvic specialist, if you have
any more surgeries make sure someone checks you for
that, I had 2 adhesion surgeries and they didn't find
it with either of those surgeries, so there goes another
surgery, 3 surgeries after my hyst.

Thanks for that I'll certainly ask!! Not feeling very well at the moment had the stitches out from the laproscopy today and I'm in so much pain,don't think that it was to do with the stitches because they weren't a big deal.See what it's like to-morrow,
Take Care,

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

It has been very interesting to me to read all your posts about adhesions. It seems like no two are alike with where their pain is and how it has affected their lives. I am beginning to suspect adhesions may be the cause or part of the reason for my pain. I had been treated for an infection in the anterior abdominal wall shortly after the hysterectomy. A CT scan 1 month later showed linear streaking which is scar tissue that has bunched up along the area where the infection was. I have seen a chiropractor thinking it was possibly due to back pain.The chiropractor discharged me after 2 months because she felt the pain was not from my back. I am seeing a physical therapist for pelvic floor therapy and myofascial relaxation. I saw a neurologist who diagnosed me with nerve damage and then referred me to a pain management Dr. I had my second nerve block 1 week ago and neither of them has helped. I have burning pain from my right hip, along my lower right abdomen to my groin. The pain ranges anywhere from a 1 to a 6 on the pain scale, some days are better than others. Although my Gyn is absolutely wonderful I feel that the word "adhesions" causes everyone to run and hide. I'm not sure exactly what the symptoms are for adhesions because it seems to vary so much from person to person. I feel like I have no one to talk to about this and I am not getting any answers or relief from this nerve wracking pain.

For the last 5 years I have read and read and read about
adhesions, and there just doesn't seem to be any good
solution, sometimes they can go in there and take them down when the pain becomes unbearable, or
blocking the intestines, but much of the time Dr.s
don't even believe that people have pain from adhesions,
I even had a GI Dr. tell me that nobody in this town
does surgery for adhesions, in other words nobody
wants to deal with it, but sometimes they can take
down the adhesions that are causing pain and if more
return they may not be in a place that hurts, so it
is really a crap shoot. I believe that someday, maybe
soon, there will be an answer for this adhesion beast.

After reading several similar stories I asked my potential surgeon about organs fusing. His reply was that it wasn't happening. I think I'll seek a second opinion from a GYN. Thanks for your post.

Hi Sisters,
I think I'm going to take the crap shoot and go for the lap. What this is doing to me mentally after 3 years is just too much. I sleep less than four hours a night, I have to wear "menstrual" heat relief pads if I'm going to be out too long, it hurts to sit and I sit 40 hours a week at work. I've been told it is adhesions, trapped nerve, hernia. Had GI guy say all is fine, had uro say all is fine, then call me 7 weeks later and say urine test say's bladder cancer! Went to a different uro who said no way, this was a computer read test, and it has the highest false/positive rating of any test out there, and he said is bascially useless but is sending urine out for his own testing as bladder scope was clean. I can't handle it anymore. My quality of life has gotten really bad. Don't like to make plans, as I don't know how sore I will be that day. Have to be very careful of what I wear, as any pressure on incision area will cause pain for two days. I will call pelvic pain specialist on Monday, and run everything by him, and ask him to schedule the lap. The new uro guy feels this is the best thing to do at this point. How I wish I could turn back the clock, this surgery would never have happened! Never had any problems before this. This is the way I felt at 6 weeks post-op, now almost 3 years later, I know it is not going to get any better on it's own.
