This post is part of a series about my quest to find relief from abdominal adhesions.
I haven’t had much to write about in regards to my quest to find relief from abdominal adhesions. Things are kind of at a standstill while I wait to get past my digestive tests. I had my colonoscopy a couple of weeks ago, but had to reschedule it. Even though I was only passing clear liquid my colon was still full of crap. The soonest I could get another appointment was for the end of September.
For my next colonoscopy I will have to be on a liquid diet for several days prior. Fingers crossed that my colon will be clean and ready for the next one. In the meantime my pain continues. At this point I will be lucky to be past the digestive tests before Christmas. To keep my sanity in tact I am forcing myself to focus on everything and anything but having surgery. Knowing that it will just be a reset and not a cure-all is what makes it easy. It is just frustrating that women who have a history of adhesions have to go through this battery of tests every time the pain becomes unbearable. My husband and I have been joking that we should start the process a few months after I do have surgery. That way surgery will be scheduled by the time adhesions attack my bowels again in a few years.
What’s the longest you’ve had to go through testing to have your surgery approved? So far 2 years is my max.
Wishing you a day with a little less pain,
