Hi Toni, I know it's frustrating to be so young and to be more handicapped by the pain than a 90 year old! I'm fresh out of surgery, just had a lap to remove my ovaries and take down adhesions. This happened on Friday. I can't wait to talk to the doctor, all he told my husband and mother after the surgery is that I was a"mess" in there. I would like a little more specifics. Every pain I feel now I think "Oh no that's the adhesion pain back". It will take a while to know. I can't wait to get back to school. Apparently my students have "run off" 2 substitutes and are working really hard on the assistant. I need to be there for them. You know it's so funny that I was in less pain immediately after the surgery than before. I hope this works!!!! I'll say a prayer for you that you find a great doctor and that you do not have an obstruction! Take care of yourself! Jessica
