Hi new to the group been in constant pain since 2005 I had a op which ended badly and led to numerous minor ops and 6 major ops ,I've been told the adhesion's have know caused that much damage I could lose the use of bladder ,bowl and part of my stomach .

I've had the gauze in twice both times never helped , been sent pain clinic and a consultant decided to inject my scar with injections of steroids which wasn't nice he said it would encourage the blood flow in the scar tissue .

Has anyone else had this done

  • I haven't had anything like that done. Was your ops for a spinal problem?

    I have problems with my bladder because of spinal stenosis. I can use the bathroom up to 30 times a day! All the docs say to me if I ever lose control of bladder or bowel then it's a medical emergency. Cauda Equina.

    Sorry I can't be if any help re your scar but I feel for you constant chronic pain is no fun as many of us on here will attest to.

    I hope you find some relief soon.

    but to answer you question the injections into my scar on my stomach to allow blood flow but didn't work if anything it was a horrendous has was took to theater was not given any sedation so unless they can offer 100% or at least a better existence I would not do it .

    Hope this helps and didn't go on sorry just wanted you to understand why I tried it it was a last resort oh and the consultant was a pain specialist my other consultants had never heard off it for stomach pain
