... 21 because my Fallopian tube twisted and cut off oxygen and blood flow to ovary. 2 c-sections and appendectomy by 25. Had a tubal ligation at 29. At age 37 I had a complete hysterectomy due to endometriosis and my uterus was tilted. I am now dealing with chronic pain in my pelvis area. Many ultrasounds and MRI showed nothing. Was told it could be scar tissue. My doctor had me on Vicoden 7.5 and then changed to Norco 10. Norco is not helping me with the frequency of the pain. He now has me on 25mcg Fentanyl with Norco for the break through pain. These patches are not working for me and Ive heard horror stories of addiction with them. Im tired of hurting everyday, What should I do?? The Dr. doesn't seem to care or understand the seriousness of my pain. Should I go to a Pain Management Center?? Find a new Dr?? Is there another pain reliever that might work better for me?? I don't drink or do drugs and work hard everyday. I just want to have a pain free day
Hello Carolina & welcome to the site. I believe your pain is caused from scar tissue problems. Coud be the ligaments they used to tie up your vagina too are sore or inflamed. You don't want a life of taking pain meds girl. You are way too young. How about having your doctor refer you to PT for a while & see if they can't get you exercising the correct muscles to get that stregthened up. I know it's hard with that scar down the middle I had a complete hysterectomy at 22 because of bleeding ovarian cysts & PID. I totaly understand sweetie, but please don't get started on pills. It's a road you will regret. You get tolerant of the dose & have to keep having it increased til you become a zombie. Not every one gets addicted. You have to be a certan personality to do that, but you will become tolerant of the dose. So try getting into physical therapy first. You may need some of your pills to begin with, but am certain you will get over this. It's very hard because you can't do regular situps, but PT can teach you ways to stregthen those muscles & work out the keloids you also probably have. Been there, done that. Best wishes to you...
