Hello all... well, I had a procedure done for the 2nd time in my 25 year history just yesterday and I am hoping that it works as good for me as it did last year.  I see to be having some adhesions building up in the rectal cavity causing me to have lots of discomfort any time that I am NOT in the horizontal position.  Last year and then again yesterday, I went to my GYN and was able to have a vaginal ultrasound done and she was able to  break up some of the adhesions in that area with the ultrasound wand.  Or at least, she felt that she was able to do that for me again.  Worked for me last year.  Hoping that once the procedure pain heals that I will not have the adhesion discomfort.  Crossing my fingers for success again.  Believe me, driving 7 hours on Thur was not much help in the comfort area  :)  Still is uncomfortable, but different than before the ultrasound.
 
Just sharing information and ideas and things that have worked for me.

Hum....begininng to wonder, had something similiar.  5 months post op, started getting severe vaginal pain during ovulation, couldn't sit/walk for about 5days.  I'm 38 and never ever had vaginal pain.  For 3 months, did nothing and decided to see my primary.  She sent me for a vaginal ultrasound.  Results came back fine, I did have a small simple right ovarian cyst and there was fluid in my vaginal cavity, recent cystic rupture.  Since then, I've been fine, no pains.  Based on what you just said, that the ultrasound wand can break up adhesions?  Next appointment with primary, I'm going to mention this, as this wasn't mentioned as a possibility then.  Hope everything goes well with you and you feel better :-)

Thanks Hodaya and Windy.

I believe the procedure was a success. Needless to say, I am quite sore, kinda like an internal bruising, but better each day. Not the same pain as before the procedure :) :) So far, I am happy with the results. Just thought that I would share this thought process and what has worked for me, just in case others may have something similar.
