Pain has changed?

Thanks Dawn

By late yesterday afternoon my tummy was distended and it hurt on both sides just like before the I guess it's my bowel......and then when I was on the bus on the way home I started having the pulling/stabbing pains vaginally on the left side that I had prior to the adhesion removal...............:cry:

Sorta feels like as something passes through the area it pulls on it or something.......this morning is slightly better but still have pain on both sides.......tummy has gone down abit..... I honestly don't know what any of this means but it is freakin me out, so if anyone is out there today and they have a clue let me know!!

I'm sure no doctor, but based on your past experience...

Maybe your IC is flaring up? I mean, you've been having problems with your bladder and you already know you have IC, so maybe that's causing the pain? Is there medication other than what you're taking available for these attacks?

Also, I remember you said you were diagnosed with IBS before your hyst., maybe it's flaring up? I've said before, when my IBS gets really bad, it feels just like adhesions (per descriptions I've read here and at the IAS site), the burning, tugging and pulling. I even had a pelvic ultrasound recently because all of my symptoms mirrored a gallbladder gone bad. But it's fine! Doctor explained that IBS can cause so many different pains and symptoms. If I'm
being a 'good girl,' I religiously down some Metamucil every nite...(supposed to do it 4x a day) whether or not I'm having symptoms. Maybe try Metamucil?

Just some possibilities...don't want you freaking out about adhesions when it could be something not related to those evil creatures.

Hang in there!

Wow Sheila, that is one old post you dug up there......that's when I was first posthyst.....where on earth did you ever find it and who knew you could do that???

It's not my bladder, it is hurting but is a completley different area.......and am pretty familiar with it by now... far as the IBS dx.......well I don't' know that's what it was, I did have some bowel "crankieness" prehyst but it was mostly with my periods and I would be inclined to think that was endo but who knows.....the pain I'm having now is not accompanied by any diarehea or constipation either, and does feel alot like the adhesion pain I've had previously so that is why I'm thinking along those lines......

I guess only time will tell!!

Bwahaha...I have my ways of finding things! Actually, you can just do a search, cuz I remember you describing this pain from way back and just went hunting.

As for not having the dia. (can never spell that) or constipation, you don't have to have either to have pain (gee, enough "haves" in that sentence?!) I feel jabs of pain daily from it because my colon is extremely spastic.

I sure hope it's not adhesion pain but, maybe, like you said, time will tell. Maybe you need some more healing time...fingers crossed for you....

I have heard my GP say before that he thought my colon might be spastic so maybe that's what's going on.......part of me just wants to play turtle and pretend it's not happening again ya know? Thanks for the input though!!!!

But, hey, IBS could be a GOOD thing, in a way. You can follow the dietary recommendations and have SOME control over it. It won't go away, and you can have flareups like Dany is having right now, but you can take control and possibly get your life back. So don't rule it out if following a sensible anti-IBS diet might give you extensive relief.

Oh I wouldn't dare rule anything out at this point....its just that food doesn't seem to effect doesn't seem to matter what I eat, it just decides to happen!!

and the other thing that is similiar to prior to this last adhesion removal and has been gone up to this week is that left sided vaginal pain that feels like something is pushing and pulliing and poking (particularly when I"m sitting) was gone and has now returned as well (just thought of that so figured I'd add it in here for the complete picture)

I'm sorry I'm late coming around to lend you some support. It's been one of those weeks.

I'm so sorry that the pain is rearing its ugly head again. It could be soooo many things. I guess we're hard nuts to crack. As much as my pain stays the same it also changes. As you know the doc say nerve damage, but I don't think that's the cause of all my old problems nor the new ones. It would be nice to know the whole story wouldn't it?

Hang in there sweetie I do wish I had some wonderful words of wisdom to tell you. Just know that we're here for you, you're not alone in your pain.
