Frozen Pelvis?!?!
I've had numerous ops, including several laparotomies, a hesterectomy and a ovarectomy. After the latter my gynae said that I now have a frozen pelvis.
I know I shouldn't worry so soon, but my concern is... what happens if I should need an emergency op where my pelvis is concerned?

Bibi, it isn’t something you need to worry about as worrying will help nothing. All it means is that if you do need an operation, it will take longer than usual – it doesn’t make the operation impossible. Good luck.
