:eek: This is a long story that I will do my best to shorten! I had a hernia surgery in September of '06. Within 4-6 months I began some serious problems that included uncontrollable diarrhea, serious abdomen cramps, and just feeling lousy most of the time. :( Life went on.... miserably till I needed another surgery for female problems. I did not begin to heal, running fever, severe pain so 2 wks later my doc opened me back up because I had a blood clot. When she opened me up she was surprised to find a mess. The mesh used in my hernia was all tangled up in my bowels. She called in a surgeon that said he could not do anything until I healed and was totally cleaned out. Being unable to work I finally got the surgery to remove the mesh, which was the most painful surgery I had ever had and I am still healing from this. Most of the problems were solved. Except that it has been over 1 year and I have returned to the hospital to have fluid drained off my abdomen 7, yes seven, times. Each doctor that has done it have no idea why it continues to return. I can tell because of the pain I feel in my abdomen when I walk, get up, stand.... you get the picture. I want to know why it continues to happen. Has anyone experienced a situation like this, and if so what did you do? I appreciate any feedback I can get. I am frustrated and want to get well. I had 5 surgery's in 2 years and a year prior to that I did 11 months of chemo.... it is time for me to get well. Please help!
Thanks and God bless.
