I had hard labor w/ my 1st child. almost ciserian. Lots of lateral cuts. After my 2nd child I had thin walls and fistula. Had bladder/wall surgery in 2002. I am in my 1st yr. of menopause and started a new job where I was forced to do lots of lifting. I only lasted there a week. I have been to a obgyn Jan. 15th of "09. I am experimenting bloating, acid reflux, getting sick, constipation, and definate pains in rectum area.
I had xrays and nothing showed up on that. Still waiting for blood test.

I have been watching my diet, no heavy lifting, and taking meds for the
gastrolitis and stool softener. I am better as long as I don't sit down
too long. especially after eating.
I looked at diagram on your website and it is hard for me to figure out
which diagram fits my physical problem. Could you help?
Thank you,
Emily Allred

Hi Emily,

I would love to help do some information gathering for you, but I am confused with some of the information you provided. Could you clarify?

- You mentioned you had a fistula. Where was it located?

- Your posting title is "bladder surgery in 2002; physical problems again". Why did you have bladder surgery in 2002, and how does this relate to your physical problems that you are currently having? (or, are you experiencing new symptoms?)

- The symptoms you describe having now (bloating, acid reflux, vomiting, constipation, rectal-area pain) do not sound like direct problems with your bladder, nor do they sound like problems with having two children many years ago. Am I missing something?

What have your doctors told you thus far? What blood tests are they currently conducting?

Hope I can help!

All my friends and family members have never had the same problem as me.
I would like to be able to talk to someone who has or is going through the same medical condition that I am experiencing.
