It's Back

Last week I started to feel that same low back pain that prompted me to go to the doctors 1 year ago. It then led to that TERRIBLE surgery that caused my intestines to become blocked, tube down my nose and unbearable pain as I laid throwing up in the hospital for a week. The cause of my severe back pain before was from an accumulation of scar tissue from previous surgeries I've had. The doctor cleaned it all out but warned me that it would probably come back.

Well...it's back and I'm really struggling, especially because I really want to start exercising again to get in shape before our first trip to New York in April for my sister-in-laws wedding. I can barely walk or move quickly because it kills me! It's SO frustrating...I feel like a little old lady or something. I absolutely refuse to go to the doctors again though so I think I'm just going to try to stretch (a lot), get a few massages and pray that it goes away.

We'll see.....

Prayers and massages will hopefully help you.
Feel better soon!

Two things...
Can you be pre-emptive and go in and have the scar tissue removed?
Is there some kind of helpful remedy, like essential oils that can help? Gosh. I'm sorry you are going through this. I almost get panicked thinking someone has to go through this. Sending you get well thoughts.

My husband has the same issues with back pain due to scar tissue from surgeries. He is currently trying nerve ablations that do help a bit. At least until the nerve grows back. You might want to check into it.

I have suffered many years with lumbar pain. I went to a specialist who deals specifically in back traumas. It helped me dramatically, and I am going to suggest you consider visiting a practice like that. I hope you feel better and recover soon. Back pain can be so debilitating.
