Adhesion Surgeon or Specialist?????

menoherone,
My cousin has diverticulitis and she doesnt get the fever or diarreha but she does get the constipation and pain. She had a colonoscopy and it showed it. So I guess not everyone gets all the symptoms.

Did you have a cystoscopy with hydrodistention under general anesthesia or did you have an in offfice cystoscopy? My interstitial cystitis (IC) was found with thy cystoscopy with hydrodistention. Apparently it is not always found with an in office cystoscopy.

Keep notes about all that you are feeling and dealing with! Hopefully soon you and your doctors will figure out what is going on! I know it is frustrating to have one test after another to rule out this and that and the other! S

I didn't realize that you had to have a general surgeon or specialist take down the adhesions. That may make me want to wait even longer to deal with these things. I thought the GYN doctor could do that.

A GYN can do adhesion surgery just as a general surgeon can. But there are some surgeons who have superior skills in this area as with any type of surgery. My surgeon was a GYN -- to be specific, he a gynecologic surgeon and reproductive endocrinologist who is an expert in minimally invasive (laparoscopic) treatment of even the most difficult cases of endometriosis and pelvic pain related conditions. Thus, he had superior skills when dealing with my adhesions as well as the endometriosis.

Surgery to fix adhesions can create more adhesions so it is not a decision to be made lightly. There have been women, some are on this site, who have had surgery for adhesions but during surgery, no adhesions were found so you do want to weigh all of your pros and cons and decide what is best for you!

Thats my problem right now. I'm driving myself nuts not knowing what to do. I have something going on in there and you never really know what it is until they get in there. The drs can do test and rule out some things but who knows whats going on in there. The pain gets so bad sometimes I'm ready to go to the ER. My gyn knows how bad my adhesions get it took her an hour last time to clean up my adhesions so she could get to my organs.

bumble,
IT IS FRUSTRATING! I hope you get some answers soon so that you can make the choices that are best for you. I wish you well.
How is your cousin dealing with her diverticulitis? Did she take antibiotics? Do they have to do surgery? Did she have to change her diet?

i had diverticulitis that needed surgery a few years ago,, the pain was horrible as was the throwing up all the time...my colon was resectioned(bad part cut out) and i thought that recovery took forever(almost a year) i stay away from any seeds i can, strawberies, sesame, tamato..etc..dont want to take anymore chances...
now when i had my hyste(TAH) i had severe adehesions from the past surgery and it took drs 9 hours , 4 blood transfusions to fix.. now i am told i may need aditional surgery to remove the 1 remaining overy(due to cancer concerns) and i wanted him to remove it lapro,, he said he couldnt do that b/c of the adhesions i have,,, now i feel like my belly is just killing me and i wonder if it's caused by adhesions that are forming or existing...

It's all so frustrating. Other than the pain (and sometimes it is really bad!) I have no other symtoms. The Dr that did my colonoscopy gave be papers saying to increase my fiber. I went to the store and read labels on everything. Then I call the GP's office and they tell me no seeds or nuts. OK. I can do that. Then when I see the GP he tells me not to change my eating habits until I see the surgeon. I ask him about doing a liquid diet or something to give my colon a rest with the antibiotics to see if some healing can take place. He tells me that evidence has shown diet really doesn't effect it once you have the infection. Yet he tells me NO pain pills because HE doesn't feel the pain is that bad. I'm to wait until I see the surgeon. It's just crazy. I feel like I'm losing my mind!
