colostomy scar tissue region - underlying stabbing pains for 6 months - adhesions? How to treat besides more surgery?
I've been through a few surgery's due to scar adhesions, due to many surgery's bowel bowel obstructions also due to adhesions, and nothing gets rid of these adhesions except a laparoscopic surgery where they can remove some of the offending adhesions, unfortunately it can and does lead to an endless cycle of repeated adhesions prodedures. I've been there in your place too many times to even count. Ask you doctor the best route to take. No mater what, every surgery leads to ore adhesions, regarless of what you try to do. I don;t want to seem like gloom and doom, it's just a fact a fact of having surgery. I wish you less painless days, and pray your doctor can come up with some solution for you. Or if someone else on this forum has a different answer, I hope they jump in and help you out here. Bless you my friend, I do know how you're feeling and what you re going through, it's a very painful condition. Best of luck again. (((hugs)))
i just had around my 18th hernia repair and they removed scar tissue that was causing me pain but i was told that scarring would come back ! this is the second time they have removed scar tissue during a surgery.about 4 years ago i had 6 inches of my small intestines removed due to a mass and acid reflex in my intestine and at that time two hernia's were repaired .then at my last surgery they repaired a hernia and had to remove my intestines from the lining of my stomach!
i guess from what i have learned is that they can remove scar tissue but it will come back!
Wait!! There are physical therapists who specialize in scar tissue therapy. It is not comfortable, but they actually break it down manually, by pushing in the direction of the scar. They also go up inside women, and work on pelvic floor scaring which can cause a lot of problems for us pretty ladies. :-) I use one, and she has been amazingly helpful for my painful scars. (Over eight+ abdominal surgeries. I understand why you hurt, believe me! Good luck!
