Hi I started reading this site a week ago. I had left thyroid removed from surgery four years ago. The following year I developed a pelvic pain on my left side only. During this time I had a very stressful job and I was raising two children. My thyroid level I was told was fine. I went in for my pelvic pain, the doctors found a tumor in my intestines, in a totally different location. I got the tumor removed but I was devastated. I felt I cannot be a good mom any more. After surgery, I found out my tumor was cancerous but since it was removed, I did not have to get any chemo. I was cancer free after the surgery but the nagging groin pain persisted and the pain spread to my abdominal area which was very debilitating. I read someone's post saying that they were sweating in pain and that's exactly how I was. Did PT, visceral manipulation, acupuncture, osteopath in two countries. The osteopath told me that I probably have adhesions from the surgery. So last summer I received an exploratory surgery to see if there are any adhesions from removing my tumor. However the surgeon told me my inside had healed amazingly and that there were no adhesions. I went out-of-state for the surgery and was disappointed again. My pain was unbearable. I read the information about Tms personality and can relate to the perfectionist personality. It is not that my house is superclean and I am a perfect mom but I have standards and if I cannot meet my standards I really feel stressed. I started the program last week on vaca and I felt better but today I went to the gym and it was hard to ignore the pain. Last week I went off lyrica and flexeril, I felt confident. And I know it is working however the second week of doing TMS therapy on the Internet, I feel I have a lot of pain until 11 AM Amd feel that I need to be laying down and doing deep breathing until I am calm. I wanted to ask how to ignore the pain during vigorous excersise. Any advice will b appreciated.
