My wife has pelvic pain apparently from a combination of post op trauma, uterine adhesion and fibroids. She's had fibroids for at least 9 years, and has been menopausal for 8 years. When she was diagnosed with fibroids 9 years ago she was told they would disappear with the menopause. She had the menopause a year later. The op, 7 years ago, was to remove an ovarian abscess. The surgeon said he couldn't do a hysterectomy because of uterine adhesion. She's in constant pain and discomfort, and has bowel and bladder problems probably caused by the fibroids. She was recently diagnosed as still having them, but told that she couldn't have a hysterectomy because of the adhesion.
