I went back and read your earlier messages...hoping to get a more
complete picture of what is causing your rectal bleeding and pain.
You mentioned that you have had 2 prior surgeries. Were these surgeries
done abdominally (laparotomy) or laparoscopically? Would you care to
share why these surgeries were done?
You mentioned that you were told that you did not have endometriosis.
Have you ever been treated for endometriosis in the past? Do you
experience increased pain when you have your period?
Have you requested copies of your medical records from doctors you have
been to? Have you requested copies of your surgical and pathological
reports from Medical Records at the hospital(s) where your surgeries
were done? You have a right to request and receive copies of all of
these records. If a video was done of your surgery, you may be able to
request a copy of that as well. All of these comprise your medical
history. If you have not done this yet, I encourage you to do so.
