Thank y'all so much! These replies mean a lot to me and have helped ease my anxiety a little. I go to the dr this afternoon. I have seen every kind of dr and tried everything to help with my pain. I know I have a lot of adhesions and my mom has literally dragged me around the world (went to Germany for adhesion removal) to help with all the pain. I have tried heat, ice, bath, accupuncture, massage, and I know other things I can't think of right now. My PCP does currently precscribe Norco, which does seem to take the edge off most days, but some times they don't seem to help at all. I am just wanting to see what my options are. I have decided that I don't want to live in pain when there is something that can help. I still work full time and hope to have a full life ahead of me. I am just so frustrated with my stomach:(
But again, I REALLY appreciate everyone for taking the time to respond to me! Thank you:)
