Bowel Adhesions & Weird Symptoms


My post op report states bowel adhesions. I'm 4 months post op (haven't had my follow up yet) and still suffering from right sided pain. I'm wondering if this is the bowel adhesions and if there is anything that can be done about them? I'm due to ovulate on Wednesday and I'm very bloated, my tummy feels heavy, I have pain inside my vagina and there feels like there is a lot of pressure.

Also I have been finding that I get headachy/dizzy/nauseous often. Anyone know what this could be?

These sound very similar symptoms to what I suffer from, with me personally I did have ads on my bowel, ovaries , tubes ect. If I was you I would contact them myself. I know what u mean about pressure tho, when I'm on my feet all day the pain and pressure is excruciating, hope u have a positive outcome, any questions please ask. X


Thanks. My follow up is 26th October. You say you did have is that past tense? x


I had surgery 2 years ago, where they cut and lasered my adhesions, unfortunately I also had to have my tubes removed as they were so damaged. This was especially hard as we were trying to conceive, it helped me for about a year, don't get me wrong I was still in pain but nowhere near what I was before, but now my pain has started to return x


Aw I'm so sorry to hear that. I had my left tube removed last lap, the only pain I suffered from on the left side was sciatica. I just wonder if this is the best it's going to get (or worse). Also considering spending my life savings on an endo specialist in England but wonder if that's the right thing to do. This as been going on since 2009 and I'm done in with it x


I think that's the question every person that suffers from endo asks themselves. At the time of my last surgery I was 22 and honestly the pain was so chronic, I was full of extremely strong pain relief just so I could function. I live in England and would most probably not suggest spending your life saving just yet. I think if your can speak to your consultant and discuss the options and maybe see if there are any other forms of treatment you could try then maybe try them first x I really do know how you feel though mine started in 2009 and it is a very long and heartbreaking journey x keep strong x
