Chronic pain after laprascopy to remove ectopic

The surgery performed to me was laprascopy to remove a ectopic pregnancy from left ovary, I had complained of severe stomach pains, so they had to perform this surgery.

I reported severe pain post surgery..i was referred to a neurologist. My EMG results indicates that I have lumbar radiculapathy L2/L4.

After 3 months of physical therapy, my therapist thinks that after laprascopy the scar tissue is in a muscle or is constricting/irritating nerve.

Pain starts in abdomen (Iliacus muscle) and moves towards hip/buttocks and goes down front of my leg, all the way to the toes...
I can stand for 8 hrs, but I cannot sit for more than 30 mins in a chair.
There are signs of improvement, but very minor
I would like to find out
- is there any remedy (ayurvedic or otherwise) for scar tissues that are internal and cause this kind of pain
- is it common to have this kind of injury after a laprascopy
- can I sue the hospital/doctor for medical negligence?

I'm not familiar with your problem, but would suggest you look into any more testing possible to diagnose the problem, and possibly even surgery to loosen the scar tissue.

i had an ectopic next to my right ovary and was in terrible, terrible pain for about a month after surgery to remove that tube and ovary - there wasn't any problem in my case though, it's renound for being a painful procedure. i found it much worse than childbirth. i don't understand what your emg results mean, sorry. i think this question would be better directed at a dr...we are not drs here. you can only really sue if the surgeons were negligent or made a mistake that should NOT have been made. best of luck and sorry for what you're going through.
