Reply to "Abdominal Pain - Possibly from Adhesions"

Gosh your symptoms are exactly like mine, sorry to have a partner in misery When I saw the second surgeon, she said all these can be caused by adhesions even if nothing shows on scans. The bowel can twist/untwist at random which is why diet doesn't seem to affect it and why the pain level can vary so much. I feel like I have chronic pain in the lower right and when the pain gets bad, it's the same place/kind of pain but just a greater intensity. I too tried fluid diets, low residue, everything, but nothing seemed to make a difference. She said diet wouldn't matter if the pain is from adhesions, although it can sometimes help. Please do post back on what your dr.'s say--I'm really curious to hear if there is a different prognosis possible then what I was told.....I am at the end of my rope too
