Yes, Martha, sounds alot like the pain we all deal with. Have your drs ever mentioned this? When I first went to the drs to tell them about the pains I am having, I got to the point that I told them there are just too many kinds of pains I have, I got to the point I called my gyn and told him in tears I am so sick and tired of explaining all the kinds and where the pain is. Tis is the most frustrating think I have EVER been through, and on top of that I have some drs who tell me that fifty percent of the medical profession does not believe that adhesions cause pain, frustrating! I told him in the same breath then someone better find out why I am in so much pain, I cannot seem to find a GI dr to help, and I know the one I used to see is the one who said that about the medical profession. I am trying to deal with the bowel issue myself, until I decide to ever try the surgery again. Right now I am not thinking about it anymore, I am trying to live a normsal life, and not let chronic pain get in the way, but it does. \ All I can do is try! I would definitely say, Martha, that you are dealing with adhesions. Toni
