Pain from C-section scars

by Marlaine
(Lloydminster Alberta Canada)




I had my first C-section 28 years ago, 5 years later I had another one. About 6-7 years later I had severe pain and they did a surgery to repair adhesions. 5 years ago this month, I had a hysterectomy and they repaired the adhesions again with mesh.


The pain as recently come back, starting about a year ago. I was told it was pain coming from hip.It felt exactly like adhesions - but nothing was done.


three weeks ago I went back because the pain has gotten in the way of my exercise and weight loss. My Doctor has booked a couple ultrasounds one this week and another one in January to check if is a hernia.


I ended up in emergency Monday, the Dr. on call said he didn't believe it was a hernia but thought a cortisone injection may help.

They gave me one on Wednesday, it worked for about 6 hours so I phoned and made an appointment with a plastic surgeon for this week to see if he can cut the scar and all its attached issues out. I need to start living again. I do belly-dance, am training for a triathlon and have two beautiful grand daughters that I need to lift and hug everyday. I feel my pain isn't being taken seriously.


After much research, I have found out that my only choice that makes any sense is to remove the scar tissue and basically have a tummy tuck.
I want to live my life, if anyone has any ideas please help.

I have had a chronic dull ache right across my c section for two years now. Numerous tests, with nothing showing up. On narcotics now just to get by. Could this be adhesions? I need my life back.
