|my doctor has does every type of test trying to diagnose the problem, but we still have not found an answer,(he has chosen to lower the amount of pain medication he allows me in half from 90 to 45 monthly). i was reluctant to have the surgery because even my HidaScan couldnt confirm it was my gallbladder, i went forward with the surgery 6/29/11 when i was at a point i was desperate, exhausted & was willing to do anything that could help. i feel now im at the same point-not only me but my family is suffering, mentally(im bi polar)& physically-i cant do it, i manage my pain with 3 methods 1-(relax, be still, breath, repeated over & over while laying down in a dark room).2-(make myself get up and focus work at a steady rapid pace until physically my body wont).3-(taking pain medication helps with managing the pain at a more comfortable level, but feel i must justify every pill taken by it being acceptable to want some relief while i am at work, or occasionally when i am tired of watching my family watch me use my other 2 methods & want to take part in things they are doing. other times i do like the doctor says & only use it if i have absolutley no other option & cant tolerate the pain anymore(by then often the pain medicine normally doesnt have much effect). now i want them to go back in and do laparoscopy to see what the test are not showing us and cant confirm & he says thats not an option the benefits dont outway the risks, it might even make things worse, i honestly now matter the risk would take a chance at anything to help rather then stay like this..|

|Dear Robin Price
You should go for diagnostic laparoscopy. Diagnostic laparoscopy is really a method that allows a physician to appear directly in the items in a patient's abdomen or pelvis, including the small bowel, large bowel, appendix, liver, and gallbladder if there is any problem in surgery.
The objective of this examination is to actually find out if a problem exists that has not been found with non-invasive tests. Inflammation from the appendix appendicitis, pelvic organs pelvic inflammatory disease may be diagnosed laparoscopically.
The process is usually completed in the hospital or outpatient surgical center under general anesthesia while the patient is unconscious and pain-free. However, this procedure may also be done using local anesthesia, which merely numbs the area impacted by the surgery and allows the patient to stay awake.
A little incision is made underneath the navel, a needle is inserted in to the incision, and carbon dioxide gas is injected to elevate the abdominal wall, developing a larger space to operate in. This enables for easier viewing and manipulation from the organs. A tube called a trocar is inserted through the incision, which allows passage of the tiny camcorder into the abdomen.
The laparoscope will be inserted so that the organs of the pelvis and abdomen can be examined. Additional small incisions may be designed for instruments that permit the surgeon to maneuver organs for a clearer view.
If you're under general anesthesia, you will feel pain free throughout the procedure, even though incisions may throb and be slightly painful afterward. A problem reliever might be given by your personal doctor.
With local anesthesia, you might feel a prick and a burning sensation once the local anesthetic is given. Pain may occur at the incision site. The laparoscope could cause pressure, but tthere should not be pain during the procedure. Afterward, the incision site may throb for many hours and may be slightly painful. A pain reliever might be given by your physician.
Additionally, you may experience shoulder pain for several days, since the co2 can bother the diaphragm, which shares a few of the same nerves because the shoulder. You may even experience an increased urge to urinate, because the gas can put pressure around the bladder.
