Hi Stacey and Suzzane,

This is the same kind of pain I have except mine is in the front of the left leg and groin area and also my lower left side. I also have pain in my lower back that has been pretty unbearable the last few days. I can't stand too long, sit, or lie down. Sometimes changing the position will help for a little bit but not for very long. It for the most part has stayed constant. I tell my husband I hurt down in my butt because it is all the way down to my tail bone. The last few surgeries my rectum has been involved with the adhesions. My last surgery on February 16 my rectum was being pulled and was attached to the top of my vagina. I am really thinking something is going on again already. I have been in alot of pain with little or no relief. On top of the side pain, groin and front of my left leg pain, and lower back pain, I have shooting pains going down the back of both legs. I go to the doctor Friday for my postop appointment. I am definitely going to find out what my doctor thinks is going on.
