Chronic Abdominal Pain

I've been suffering from severe abdominal pain for some time. In September I had surgery for endometriosis and it was found that I had much scar tissue that the surgeon thinks is causing alot of nerve pain. I've also been having abdominal muscle spasms, I've been going to pelvic physical therapy and my doctor there suggested having a trigger point injection to help with the spasms. However, my pain management doctor suggested instead that I take b&o suppositories for the pain. From what I've researched it is used just for urinary spasms, which i don't have. Will this medication also work for abdominal spasms with pain?

Hi Kdc,

Welcome to the Pain Management Forum.

B & O Suppositories are also used for other spasms in the pelvic or abdominal cavity with varying degrees of success. B&O are are combination of two drugs, opium (a narcotic pain medicine) and belladonna (an anticholinergic). They can work well together to releif pain and control spasms.

Some pp with Interstitial cystitis as well as bowel or rectal spams have been prescribed this medication. In my opinion it's worth a try.  

Best of luck to you. Please keep in touch and let us know how effective the medication is for you. We are here to support you and offer suggestions. We all learn from one another.
