I am having severe chronic pelvic pain. Had numbers of surgeries

I am having severe chronic pelvic pain and have had a number of surgeries such as, a laperoscopy for endometreoisis, two c sections, a hernia repair, appendectomy, gall bladder removal and another laperoscopy to remove some internal bleeding after one of my c sections. Could this pain be from scar tissue or what else could be the problem?

severe chronic pelvic pain- could either be related to your previous surgeries r could be an independent symptom, it takes proper evaluatuion to declare anything.

An acute problem will corellate well with Surgery. Chronic one may be due to some other prob- recurrent endometriosis?

pain in abdomen post surgery can be due to adhesions. Hence may need adenolysis. For this to be confirmed a ct scan of the abdomen is useful. However this also can lead to intestinal obstruction etc, and hence if you have severe pain i would advise you to call your emergency number immediately. Else i would advise you to consult a surgeon. I hope i have answered your query. Take care
