Robin: It's not like I'm a health preofessional in any way, but I've been living w/pain fior so long (16 years) it's like the guest that doesn't know when to leave. I've had 8 surgeries in 8 years, the last 6 years I've decided to try & get along (I hesitate to say live, that's a toughy) w/out any more surgeries. My gyn told me that he wouldn't do anymore surgery on me unless it was life-threatening. And I trust his judgement. Having surgery might not help you and can indeed make things worse. I don't mean to sound like a doomsayer, but when I read your post, I felt your frustration & anger at this Thing that cannot be fought with. Some days I'd love to give up hte ghost & just end it myself, but I don't. I don't know why, buit I don't. I mean, God, if we were animals they'd have put us down by now, right. I guess as people we must suffer & endure. As my Mom always tells me: "When a window is closed, God open a door". I'm still looking for that door, I kmnow it's there somewhere.

Blessed Be. Karla B
