I'm 44 and have had 6 abdominal surgeries. Several were for fibroids, infertility and finally a hysterectomy. One was for double inguenal heria (when I was 20 following my first surgery) and most recently a laporosacopy to remove one ovary, endometriosis and massive adhesions removed just 3 yrs ago. The last year or so I've had recurrent digestive symptoms including gas, and constipation. I was diagnosed with IBS, but I still have the ripping, tearing and burning pains the doctors all say are adhesions. Within the last month or two it feels like my abdomen is 'falling out'. I can't pull my stomach in. I'm afraid if I do have a heria that another surgery will just cause more adhesions. I don't believe my current doctors (internal medicine and gastroenterology) are the correct doctors to diagnose and treat this, what type of doctor should I seek? What should I ask and look for in regards to the doctors treatment to minimize or prevent any recurrence of adhesions?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
