I have chronic supra pubic pelvic pain for 15 months. Countless tests and no diagnosis. It is worst when sitting. Accompanied by gastrointestinal distress. Bloating and pain in abdomen my L6 is rubbing the sacrum on the right side. I've had and SI injection. Transverse alar as well as numerous nerve injections. Do you recommend a laparoscopy ? After this many months in pain I also have PFD symptoms and am worried about scar tissue .

Hello, XXXXXX,
I am sorry to hear that you have been suffering with this for over a year.
You mention that you have undergone a lot of tests. I am assuming that
you have had blood tests as well along with sonogram and CT_scan of
the abdomen and pelvis. You mention bloating and abdominal pain.
Has there been a change in your bowel habits ? Either constipation or
diarrhea ? Have you been losing weight ? The spinal problem seems to
be a separate issue. I also assume that you have had a good check up
of your urinary bladder by a urologist .I am sure your gynecologist has
given you a thorough check up as well.
If all of these have been addressed , laporoscopic examination may be
helpful. If you have had prior pelvic or abdominal surgeries , adhesions
(Scar tissue) could be giving you problems.
Hope I have given enough for you to discuss with your doctor.
Wish you well.
