I had surgery almost 5 months ago they removed a cyst from my bladder that was connected to my belly button , well I was good for about 3 weeks after the surgery but then I started get this severe cramping and also sharp stabbing pain in my lower left side plus numbness on the same side so I went to the ER and the said I had an Enlarged Rectus Muscle with hemtoma which is gone now but the pain is still the same so I have gotten CAT_SCAN like you wouldnt believe and they say they are normarl , but they said I do have Scar tissue with Adheisions which need to be removed by a surgeon but the only problem I'm having is I have seen 2 already and they said if they arent cause bowel abstrution we wont remove them . I cant even walk or cough or even bend without being in pain its an everyday thing , Is anybody else going through something like this.

  • It is true that surgery is not indicated if the adhesion is not causing obstruction of your bowel.Ask a different Dr. if he can keep you in the hospital and keep you hydrated using an intravenous line (not by mouth) and NO FOOD for few days...this will resolve the adhesion.
