No one should have to go through this kind of pain.  It hurts, it's embarassing to talk about to medical people and It's almost sadistic that scar tissue should manifest itself in such a syndrome as this.  I had more pain this week then ever before with the pelvic pain problem I've been enduring since surgeries a couple of years ago.  I was referred to a pain program, so I got a referral I'm going, but I just had an episode like I've never had before, and had to go to this doctor that really doesn't know what it is and doesn't feel she can do anything about it.  I feel like I just got blown off because the nurse left me a message to go to the emergency room if it's bad.  She's like washing her hands of me.  I was in her office last night and got a sonogram of the area because this pain episode lasted longer and was more severe than others before, and she now hasn't gotten back to me but has seen the results, aparently.  The nerve.  She's on my list right now.
Wish me luck tomorrow.  Craft show, my first big one.  Pictures will be taken tonight.

I have adhesions in my pelvic area that have been causing me pain over the years and sometimes it's so bad I am nearly doubled over in pain and I can certainly empathize with how you are feeling.   I'm so sorry you're having to go through this Ellen.
My doctor has repeatedly blown me off and I finally decided that given my present circumstances that I have to find a new doctor.  I got my records from the old doctor and found it to be a partial record and it was filled with falsehoods and statements like:
Patient has complained of mild pain.
I do have an appointment with a new doctor, but I hate to give him these records which do not represent the truth of the matter at all.  This doctor would not see me without having my records from the old doctor, and when I brought them in and made the appointment, I was told that I would only be seeing the physician's assistant and that I would not be able to see the new actual doctor until July.
I'm left wondering if I'm in the wrong place again.  What if I don't even like the new doctor?  Will I have wasted another month waiting and in pain?  
I just hate doctors, I hate this whole thing and feel that I don't know where to turn anymore.  I've been asking around about good doctors, but no one seems to know anything.
Again, more venting and I'm sorry. 
Best wishes to you Ellen and please, keep us updated on the results.

I hope that the docs get you figured out real soon. Pain is no fun!

Thinking of you sweetie.
