About Me: Female, GARDEN VALLEY, CA, member since Jan 2012
Hi, I am new here, I have had chronic adhesions, and endometriosis for 20 plus years.I had 3 c sections, 80,81 and 82. I have had 3 laproscopic adhesion removals, one open, and then a hysterectomy in 2002 with even more adhesion removals. The surgeons, 2 groups of gener
[More]al sugeons so far have said that basically they will not do anything unless i have a major obstruction as my guts are more than likely adhesed together and they do not want to do more harm. I also am immune compromised, I get ivig treatments, once a week at home sub q. Have to stick myself. My last hospital stay of course was useless, same workups, labs normal other than the massive weight loss due to not being able to eat due to pain. They sent me home with mscontin for pain a new primary care doctor and pamphlets on how to deal with chronic pain and depression. I had wanted to have the adhesions removed, I dont want to live on pain meds, not like this. I want to eat, like I used to be able to. Do I keep searching for the answer or is it right in front of me, no more surgeries, and just accept the pain and meds? Please help I need someone to talk to right now, I do not want to accept this. Most of the trouble I am having is that anyone who would do surgery doesnt take medi cal, I am disabled and in Calfornia and not many doctors are taking my insurance for anything. But the ones that do say the risk outweighs the possible benefits.
