I am so sorry about your father-in-law. My prayers are with him and with
you. I am going for my third laparoscopy. I am not sure that I will have to
have a resection, although four doctors who have seen my last two videos
agree I may. That is worst case scenario. A CT Scan I just had showed an
area of bowel that is of concern. My GP said on the films it looks like
someone poked a hole in my belly button and poured in a bucket of cement.
Nice analogy, huh? I said that is what it feels like too! I have a
wonderful laparascopic surgeon and a general surgeon who specializes in
laparoscopy. I have total trust in them and that makes all the difference.
I am scared as we all are before surgery, but at the same time looking
forward to feeling better and definitely to eating again! Bev and Helen have
been such a wonderful inspiration to me and taught me much. And all of you
sharing your stories and making me feel not so alone have been a blessing. I
am going to California for my surgery and am actually going to meet two
fellow adhesion sufferers who I met through the forum! Thanks for caring,
Toni and stay strong. Ginni
