Hi Laura, I am also 21 and have adhesions in my pelvic area. It started this time last year in may when I had an ectopic pregnancy, I was treated with methotrexate which was he worst pain of my life...but I manged to get through it! 6 months later I had a laparoscopy because I was suffering from bad pains...that is when they found extensive adhesions. I had them removed ur I am now in the same pain...I cannot walk sometimes...I am in pain 24 7. It is awful...all I wana do is cry. I used to be such a bubbly happy person, I'm just a shell of what I used to be. Funnily enough I've just got back from the doctors and he gave me pain meds and anti depressants because I told him how sad this was making me. I cannot see a way out anymore, I've tried swaps! Nothing has improved. I'm at my wits end

Hope things get better for the both of us :) x
