Reply to "Abdominal Pain - Possibly from Adhesions"

DUCK11,

Wow your symptoms do sound like mine! I’m sorry you are going through this too!! How long has this been going on for you? How often do you have severe pain? How often have you had to go to the hospital? Are your doctors suggesting surgery or anything else or is this something you just have to deal with? I’m meeting with the surgeon next week, really interested to see what she says. Also getting a second opinion from another GI doc the following week & then following up with my regular GI doc in May (there’s a long wait for an appointment). So far the only other advice I received was from my OBGYN who said it’s possible that this could be endometriosis because some of the symptoms are similar. She said I don’t have the “classic signs” but that doesn’t completely rule it out. So I’m trying out skipping my periods with continuous birth control (skipping the sugar pills) because if I have endometriosis that will help and she said it won’t hurt anything to try this. If it helps great, if not we can rule that out. I still think this is probably GI related but I’m willing to try almost anything at this point.
