Reply to "Abdominal Pain - Possibly from Adhesions"

Marg and SJan810,

Thank you for sharing your stories here--not that I am glad others are going through what I am, but somehow comforting to see other physicians giving the exact same information and advice as mine have. And you are right Marg, the ER wait is so dreadful

The "twist/untwist" scenario you mention is also what my Dr. said and why it isn't showing on scans and also why it seems to come and go at random. Sometimes it is partially blocked for 4 days and sometimes it is just suddenly painful for a few hours and seems to pass. I'm alarmed how many narcotics I've taken the past few months to cope but honestly don't know what else to do--I don't think I could function without them with how often I am in pain from this-at least they make it less awful. I'd be in the ER twice a week. And going to the ER is SUCH a ordeal. My surgeon told me today the only reason I need to go to the ER at this point is if I started vomiting a lot, have a fever, or have intolerable pain, otherwise it is Ok to try to soldier it out at home. She also said there are no surgeries that can help since they don't know where the mechanical problem is. She said to mentally prepare for disability and I am trying to process it all and how to care for my infant son. Really looking forward to hearing what your dr.'s tell you as I am at my witt's end
