I have agonizing pain in my right side of tummy for 10 years. Recently left side gets severe pain too...
I had a lapaloscopy in 2011, I was told that I have many adhesion in my pelvic area. My bowel is stuck to my womb and ovary. I do have bleeding after the bowel movement during my period. I have awful pain to open my bowel. This pain comes from 10 days before my period and end when my period become the heaviest (about day 4 or 5) so I have pain 1/2 of the every month...
The doctor thinks that I have endomitriosis on and in my bowel. My doctor's registorer told me if I have an operation, I may have a storma.
If the pain ease with this operation, I may want to go for it (operation to remove the loads of adhesion and endomitriosis). If you have experienced this kind of operation and woke up with a bag attached to you, please tell me the followings:
1. How were you "diagnosed" that you have endomitriosis in the bowel? - did you have an endoscopy? MRI?, something else?
2. How was your operation? How long was your recovery time? How long did you have the bag? I work full time, how long would I take time off work?
3. The storma bag is only temporary, isn't it? How does it end - another operation to saw up the hole for the bag?
4. Most importantly, how is your pain now?
Thanks in advance!
