Dear Kelly,

I'm so sorry you are in pain. I know exactly how you feel.......I feel the same. I ended yesterday at ER. I had x-rays done with no findings. The doctor called my surgeon and he said the pain was adhesion pain. They gave me "percocet" (pain killer) and it just got me drowsy but the pain was still there until almost at 10:00pm when I told the doctor to give me "Ultram" which a friend from IAS told me she was taking for the pain. I don't know if it was the combination of the two drugs but it got me sleepy, drowsy, nauseous, so sick to my stomach that it knocked me out to sleep until 4:00am with little pain. He sent me home and gave me a prescription of Ultram and told me that was a good idea for me to take for the pain. The doctor also told me to go see my surgeon so he can look at the "area" that is reddish and swollen. I have been all day drowsy, little pain and sleeping all day. Now I took the first pill of Ultram here at home and going to see if it really will take away the pain for a while. Please, if there is a way I can help you don't hesitate to ask're not alone! Take care and God bless.

Eileen, I wish I had answers for you. All I can tell you is what I've been through. You have me beat in the surgery department... but I had sugery last May and they removed my sigmoid colon, that was 3 months after they removed an ovary, tube and massive adhesions and endo. And here I am in pain, I am doing physical therapy which has helped my abdominal, superficial pain. But that deep pain is there and getting worse. I have scheduled surgery with specialists I heard about on this site. It is my last resort to regain some quality of life. While the thoght of more surgery scares me to death, staying like this, or getting worse... no way. The women on this site have given me so much information and support. I am still a novice. Just stay informed and read the posting. It will inspire you to keep going and make you feel less alone. It has helped me so much. Take the time and read the quilt. I stayed up all night, hurting last weekend ans read it all. I cried and cried. For all the women who had it so much worse and for the relief that I am not alone.

Love, Kelly Doucet << File: ATT00015.htm >>
