I am no longer able to have sex with my husband, and have chronic abdominal pain. It all began with a radical and rare surgery to deliver my son eight years ago. He had a massive tumor on his neck that crushed his airway. The doctors opened my body up wide enough to partially deliver him (keep him attached to my blood supply and oxygen) while they tried to find his trachea. Gradually, over the course of three years, my pelvis became so irritated the only option I had was to have a partial hysterectomy. The doctor found Endometriosis, massive amounts of scar tissue and Adhesions, as well as my uterus attached to my abdomen wall. Around a year after that I had my appendix removed. A year after that, three months ago, I began experiencing increasing pain again. This time I had cysts on my ovaries (the only reproductive organs remaining in my body) and as a result I had another surgery to remove them. The pain is chronic and debilitating! I am insured through the United States Federal Government (Medicaid) and they no longer cover any care from a Gynecologist! I need help! I am looking for any resources, medical and support group help available in the USA. Thank you for your time.
