what does adhesion pain feel like, and where do you feel it in relation to the incision?
I have endo and developed very severe adhesions as a result of my first lap, so I am already very familiar with them.... in the video of my second lap, you can't see any of my internal organs until doc started cutting through those adhesions - they literally looked like sheer curtains covering everythign inside, sticking my organs together. AND they caused the most intense pain I have ever felt in my life.
Following the c-section, the adhesions weren't anywhere near as severe, but I know that kind of pain all too well. For me it's a very sharp, localized pain that feels like a pulling or tearing inside, kind of like when you sprain an ankle. And for me, it was always down low, like on my bladder, and was definitely worse if I went too long without emptying my bladder, or if I moved in such a way or stood up too fast.
At about seven or eight weeks into my second pregnancy (about the same time my belly started to show), I was dancing with my DD and was literally doubled over with the most intense adhesion type pain I have felt since before my second lap surgery. It felt just like someone had snapped a giant rubber band inside me. After that, I had no more problems in that respect, and I'm convinced my adhesions broke.
