Reply to "Abdominal Pain - Possibly from Adhesions"

To the OP:

Yes!  I had the most horrific pain where my stoma was and now I have a hernia.  As for the pain, it was due to adhesions or scar tissue.  It caused ascites and I had 1100cc of fluid sucked out of me.  It came back and the pain continued, so my surgeon cut me open and fixed me up.  He inserted a mesh.  So far so good.  

I will have another surgery next month to fix the hernia.  And another mesh.  It feels like a never ending battle.  Unfortunately, I still feel a lot of pain when not taking meds.  The only meds that really address it is Suboxone.  Better than regular pain meds.  Except it is now more of a dull, throbbing pain vs sharp pain that feels like shards of glass.

I don't know of other options other than surgery.  Good luck.
