Abdominal Surgery, Ovary Removed, Now Chronic Bladder Infections
Ted...you helped me so much with recuperating from my hysterectomy surgery over a year ago! Thank you. I underwent more abdominal surgery in March and had my right ovary removed due to a fast growing cyst which was causing a lot of pain. My doctor also told me that she had found a few adhesions, I suppose from my previous surgery, which she cleaned up.
My question...I feel terrible still!! Dr. said she is not surprised by this at all...it has only been two months. I am having pain in my right side radiating to my back flank area. Constipation, and serious pressure on the bladder. Over the past year I have had over 8 urinary tract infections, and have had two since my surgery in March! I am not sleeping well, and just muddle through my day so I can get home to rest. I have made an observation...when I eat red meat I feel really really bad....I can feel the pressure in my intestine as it works its way through, and have a lot of lower back pain until I can relieve it with a bm. I have started the ACV twice a day, taking a stool softener daily, and also taking Vitalzyme, which is supposed to dissolve scar tissue. I am taking fifteen a day. Any advice you could give me would be so much appreciated!!! I do have an appointment to see a urologist in a couple weeks for the bladder infection problems I am having. I look forward to hearing from you!
