Customer Question

I have had adhesions previously - my Gynaecologist took an extra hour to remove the adhesions during my hysterectomy - however I seem to have the same pain as before and feel that I may have developed further adhesions since my hysterectomy (in 2006). The pain is getting gradually worse and although initially felt in my back - as if I had a kidney infection - I have developed pain in my pelvic area at the front.
I was taking Ibuprofen - but as this did not touch the pain - I called and have been prescribed Naproxen (250mg) every 6-8 hours. (Also prescribed Omeprazole)
However the pain is still there - not as severe but still not able to move freely.
I am only able to see my GP on Wednesday but wondered whether you can suggest anything.

Hi. Any fever or change in your bowel movements? How long has this been going on?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Get a fever on and off. Was feeling nauseous last week ever though the pain was less. My bowel movements can go from being constipated to being very loose. I would hazard a guess at about six months but the severe pain only the past 1 - 1 1/2 weeks.

I also have felt very bloated with a feeling of tension between my back and stomach.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK Lesley. This probably isn't an adhesion problem in the sense that you've got a partial small bowel obstruction. Without a high fever it isn't likely a kidney infection either. It could be a kidney stone problem or maybe a pelvic infection but obviously you need to get it checked out and I would start with blood work, a urinalysis, and a ct scan of the abdomen and pelvis and you need all that done as soon as possible. You can switch to ibuprofen up to 800mg at a time three times a day and for now I'd suggest a bland diet of soups and soft vegetables
