Tough one: Chronic visceral pain is difficult. The 2 most likely sources of pain are scar tissue and nerves. There are some medications that are worth trying for the nerve pain such as amitryptilline. No medication that I'm aware of is helpful for scar tissue. It's probably best to focus on relaxation techniques, alternative therapies (accupuncture), gentle massage or stretching, meditation/prayer.

Pain: The location and type of pain is important. Is the pain in the incision?
