Re: hysterectomy 6 years ago
I had a hysterectomy 11 years ago, I have suffered bloating and stomach cramps ever since, especially first thing in the morning, (the pain eases when I have a bowel movement). I was first told I had IBS, (this is a general answer to all pain in the abdomen) non of the medication had any effect, so I did some research myself and found out about adhesions, which grow after abdominal operations. I had keyhole surgery to split the adhesions, but the problem is that each surgery causes more adhesions. (The main cause of adhesions is the gas they use in abdominal operations)
I also have Bowel Prolapse and have been told by my consultant that they can do an operation called STARR. Not sure about this!!
