Adhesion's after surgery
Whenever I have back surgery (I’ve had 7) I always have problems with adhesions. It usually requires laparoscopic surgery to cut away the offending adhesions. Last time they had attached to my stomach and intestines and pulled them up under my ribs, causing a great deal of pain and a partially collapsed lung. I’m having the same pain again after my most recent back surgery, but the surgeon who operated on my adhesions the last time is no longer practicing. I can’t get a doctor to believe that the problems I’m having are due to the adhesions. I’m wondering if anyone has any suggestions for me. I went to see a gastroenterologist, but he said all I needed was an enema. Great, that helps a bunch. I’m having a hard time eating anything, and I don’t know how to convince a specialist that I know what is causing my pain. HELP!
