Thank you Ginni and Peggy, I have been told this by so many doctors here in Cinti, and even dr semertzidies does them all laparotomy, I know that the large incision causes more adhesions, I am aware of this, just do not know where to turn.

I am ahving trouble trying to understand the pain I have had for the last two days, it was so much better, at least I could do things. I have suffered alot the last 2 days. And the pain clinic says there is no more they can do with meds. I am still on oxycontin, neurotin, and trazadone, and they added ativan for my nerves. That was my pcp did that! I am so tired of all of this! BUT THANK YOU GIRLS!
