1. Ann Ann United States says:

    I wish I had known about this risk 30 years ago. I am now 55 yrs old and have suffered RLQ pain since my tubal ligation. I have been treated for urinary tract infections, kidney stones, irritable bowel syndrome, interstitial cystitis, appendecytis(for which at that time they found the adhesions). Well that surgery helped for about a week. Evidently the adhesions grew back. I have trouble sitting in a certain position like 45 degrees, I can't squat for very long or bend at the waist for any extended periods. I actually had a laproscopic procedure due to an outpouching "tumor" on my intestine per CT scan. When opened up, there was no tumor. I had this procedure due to severe bloating and feeling of trapped gas and severe gas pains. I went into surgery thinking I was having a colon resection due to a tumor. I was closed, and no tumor found, they did remove my appendix. I expect I had a partially stangulated portion of bowel that was trapping gas and causing a "tumor" on the CT scan. I can't prove this, but this is what I suspect. I have learned to leave mother nature alone. I have spent 25 years with a pain I could have avoided if I perhaps had known of this phenomenae.
