Just found this forum today. I suffer from adhesions through
endometriosis...you know, that satanic disorder...I I was diagnosed with
endo in 1996 after 13 years of monthly cycle pain. My dr found endo
that she lysed but left a small endometrioma behind my uterus. That was
a great decision (sarcasm), especially since it has grown to the size of
a hockey puck, can physically be seen on an ultrasound, has frozen my
pelvis and adhered it to my rectum. But I'm not bitter...LOL. I also
have adhesions on my intestines. It causes indigestion all the time,
nausea, this pulling/tugging pain on either side. I had a lap May of
this year and my dr told me that he didn't want to attempt to remove
that unless I was scheduled for a laparotomy. I don't know if it is
good or bad to have surgery b/c since my lap I have constant daily pain
(not just cyclic pain).
My dr that performed the lap is wonderful. He definitely is concerned
about the pain and believed me when I said that the endo has spread. He
is also very good with pain management. If anyone needs at dr in the
Atlanta area, I would definitely recommend him.
Thanks for letting me vent.
Peace and Pain free days to all!
