Am I going to have to get surgery for my pain from scar tissue to get better?

I was diagnosed and treated for pid 2 months ago. I tried to tell my doctor that I was still hurting and I thought I still had it they didn't listen (changing doctors now). I about passed out at my last day of work, and I went to the hospital. They did a pelvic exam and when he was feeling around I started balling it hurt so bad, I scared the er doctor. I was at the hospital for 5 hours being pumped with morphine and antibiotics. I'm now on a stronger medicine then I was last time, and pain med's. Before leaving I asked if since I'm so tender if it's a high possibility that I have scar tissue. I knew it can cause infertility but when he mentioned it was kinda scared he thinks my scar tissue is bad. I'm wondering if I'm going to have to do the laposcopy, and get the scar tissue out for my pain to subside? I've had pain since I had my daughter three years ago, I think that's when I got the pid. I pushed just pushed for three hours she was stuck on my pelvic bone. Her heartrate dropped they used forceps, and took me to emergency c-section. They had to push her back up in me to get her out. I'm scared I've had it for a long time, and I just quit my job to get insurance. Also wondering if this could be the reason I have to take magniesum citrate or enema's to have a bowel movement? I've used laxitives and stool softners but it still hurts when having a bowel movemen so I use the other two.

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. My first question, did you have surgery that caused scar tissue or are you explaining that the scar tissue was caused by your PID? What was your treatment for pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)? PID is a bacteria that enters the vaginal area and can spread to other organs.

The scar tissue that you are talking about must be diagnosed and treated by a doctor. I would certainly make an appointment as soon as possible since you are in so much pain, I would actually try to find a surgeon.

Please provide the above information so we may better assist you. In regard to your bowel movements, PID is known to cause constipation due to possible pelvic adhesions although using pain medications can certainly cause constipation and a diet change to include high fiber can certainly help with that. Again, seeing a physician would be necessary to distinguish between the two. I hope that portion helps. We look forward to hearing back from you.

Good luck,
