hi girls

i hope you remember me? I had a yah BSO last July for heavy bleeding but was in so much pain after I had surgery again in December to see why my left side was so painful. My consultant could not get in due to adhesions so I had further open abdominal surgery to have them removed 11 days ago, the findings was mass adhesions which had attached to my bowel these have now been removed after 3 hour surgery 😩 Xx I asked my consultant if it is normal to be in more pain this time round as my tag was open surgery but not as bad as this, he explained he had a lot of work to do inside and had to manipulate my bowel then scrape, I a so sore it's unreal I am trying to move around but this makes it worse I am hoping this is the last surgery for a while and I can move on? Xxx I thought I would update you on my progress as promise xxx love to you all

      Hi Debbie

      I have now had 4 open abdominal ops. 2 x c sections, I had TAH BSO last July but had a lot if pain in left side so went back in December for investigation laparoscopy which he could not get in due to mass adhesions and advised I would need to have open surgery again to have them removed, once in he found a large band across my belly button area and my bowel was attached to my tummy wall due to all the scar tissue 😩 I was in surgery 3 hours whilst he scraped it all away x I felt this was far worse than having my hysterectomy and I thought that painful, I had this on 31st March Thursday they let me out on the Saturday but I was re admitted on the Tuesday due to heavy bleeding from behind. I had a blockage which then created overflow this was why bleeding? I am now in laxiatives for a while to help healing and remove blockage just as well can't go anywhere otherwise be a bit nasty haha xx feeling little better this morning but I feel I was to blame doing too much after my TAH thinking I was super woman so this time I am doing as I'm told haha xxx
