Thanks for your message. I did see my surgeon and he was more than happy to answer all my questions. I didn't really grill him - just had a few questions regarding the surgery. He believes I will be fine - thinks I will fully recover and have no pain. He said that during my last surgery, the colon was stuck to the abdominal wall. He says that will cause pain and trouble later. He said he reconstructed my omentum so that if I did develop further adhesions, they would stick to that fatty layer and still be able to move rather than being stationary.

He did use the word "crazy" when describing people that contribute all their pain to adhesions. I wanted to ask him if he had ever even HAD abdominal surgery, as he is a fairly young physician. It is very frustrating.

But anyway, no I do not have endo, just adhesions due to surgeries. I am trying to keep a positive attitude as I know there is a definite mind-body connection.

Have most of the women on this forum had endo?? Take care - Dana
