    Chronically Painful Abdominal and Pelvic Adhesions

    I am apologizing in advance because this post is gonna be a long one. I’ve had 2 surgeries in the past year that have dealt with the removal of my reproductive organs. Both surgeries were extended due to adhesions that developed from prior surgeries over the past 20 years. During both surgeries, my adhesions adhered to my intestines, colon, ovaries and Fallopian tubes. Each time my surgeons told my husband and I that they had to chisel away the adhesions before they could even reach my reproductive organs. Now I am left with excruciating pain because the adhesions have come back even worse than before. I currently take Celebrex 200mg, Tylenol 500mg and Percocet 5mg/325mg and the pain level is never less than a 3. Surgery is not an option because it will make my situation worse. I still work full time but my pain management doctor wants me to go on disability. I’ve been fighting her advice for the past 2 months. Any advice or recommendations will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
