Life With Adhesions

A little blog to help people understand what it is like to live with adhesions!

Why Write a Blog

on February 14, 2012

I have been suffering with adhesions for more than 2 years now.  Originally I didn’t know very much about adhesions and neither did my friends and family members (some still don’t quite get it).  I have been trying to learn as much about them as I can.  While I could find lots of websites that told me about adhesions and weighed the pros and cons of surgery and adhesion barriers, I couldn’t find many active websites that addressed the personal suffering of fellow adhesion sufferers.  I decided to start a blog to tell my story in the hopes that it may help just one person out there who is going through some of the same things that I am going through to know that they are not alone.  Or perhaps there is a family member or friend of yours that is an adhesion sufferer and you would like to better understand what it’s like to live with adhesions every day.  I hope that you can relate to my story and that we can journey together.  I expect many ups and downs but hopefully some laughs, smiles and good stories along the way.

    I have/had (hopefully) endo, and got adhesions from the endo, and from the surgeries. For now, things are going well, 5 months after my last surgery. My sister has severe adhesions, no previous surgeries, and no endo. She has had repetitive uti’s. Her adhesions caused her uterus to be frozen in place – they could only move it 1/2 an inch either way, and she had adhesions all through the abdomen, and covering half her liver. It’s nice to have a place to talk about this. As sis says, we’re not hypochondriacs, we’re just commenting on our symptoms – and there’s a lot! And, no, it’s not in your head!

      Thanks Kathy! I feel for you and your sister. Great to that you have some relief for now. These darn adhesions are tricky and cause a lot of issues that people just don’t understand. Feel free to chat anytime – Glad to know there are other people out there like me!
