Need a bit of support and to see if there were others out there. I have had five operations, including three laparotomies for pelvic, ovarian and tubo ovarian abscesses. Last episode was awful and I ended up in critical care. Now instead of more surgery - which would be a hysterectomy but I'm only 25 with no children, so I am going to pain management clinic. Does anyone know what I should expect? Is it just one quick appointment? Have people found them helpful?
