I was wondering if anyone has had experience with severe pain from scar tissue. Here is my history: I am a stage 3/4 survivor (my met was a lymph node that was inconclusive) I finshed folfox last May with 5 rounds of Avastin. So far all clean scans
for which I am incredibly grateful. 11 weeks after my original colectomy I had more surgery to remove a small bowel obstruction that was caused by scar tissue adhesions.
A few weeks ago, I started having pain in the abdomen (severe) intermittenly. Xrays show no obstruction, but it presents as if it is being caused by scar tissue. My docs have come to that conclusion. We are all pretty much on a wait and see mode now. The only real option I have is more suregery. (which will create more scar tissue) and I am really reluctant to do that.
Has anyone had bouts of this type of pain and have any tips for getting through it? Any home remedies would be appreciated. My doc has me on liquid diet for a few days and then a soft diet for a little while. Chet (my hero) has told me to drink lots of water. Both of these seem to help a little, plus my heating pad and my yoga breathing. I'm just hoping it diaspears as abruptly as it came. Thanks for your help Sue
