Hi all, I have had chronic abdominal pain for several years since I was diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease, all doctors said the pain was constipation or IBS. recently I had bad pain in the area of my appendix and so they finally did a laproscopy. they found my appendix was surrounded by adhesions and that I also had adhesions all up the right side of my bowel. I also had a transvaginal ultrasound which was sooo painful, and they said there was some free fluid in my pelvis, and also wondered whether one ovary was stuck to my uterus, (the surgeon never commented on my ovaries or uterus, just the appendix). So I don't know what caused the adhesions and I don't know if I have endometriosis. iv always had awful painful heavy periods, and pain around ovulation time. was wondering if endometriosis would cause adhesions of the bowel like mine though? thanks
