Dana, So you are having the surgery again, I do not have time to read back, sorry. When the gyn did thelast surgery he removed the rest of the omentum, thinking what you said about the fatty layer. For some reason they thought that woud help, but it did nothing. Things for me are getting awfully hard, but I am going to TRY to give it at least 3-6 minths before I do go for surgery, they have no guarantees for me, and mhy husband is afraid for me too!

I am thinking about all of you, was out to some estate sales, keeps my mind busy!


I do not have endo either.
