Toni, I am having similar problems. I have to sleep sitting up. If I try to lay on my side, and then roll over, I get such pains just like if the intestines were twisted into knots. I had some loose stool with pain, this morning. Then I went a lot more loose stool, which it was like a lot of pain- not cramps - and like the stool more or less fell out, with me not really having any urge. But the pain is always there, and nothing relieves it. I told the ob/gyn today and I asked her if the adhesions could be back. I told her it is not IBS. Then after I told her I am starved, losing weight, in pain, and having trouble going, she said,"You look a lot better than you did before the surgery."I asked how the path. report was, and she said it just showed a few tiny fibroids.I asked her then, why she took everything. She said,"Because you were crying you had pelvic pain and wanted the pain taken care of. "I told her that I had asked her not to take anything that wasn't really bad. She said that we agreed on the plan of treatment, and I said "but you wrote it as a possible hysterectomy." I guess I don't have to see her anymore. The job is done, the $$$$ are made, and I guess this is as good as I get. I am so discouraged that I ever let myself be cut.I am afraid to take too many laxatives when I have abdominal pain because in some cases you can do more harm than good. Hope you're feeling better.
