Go to http://www.adhesions.org/ & comb thru the FORUM & the LINKS. You sound desperate. you can e-mail me directly & give me your phone number & I'll call you or I'll give you my phone number & you can call me. You can also e-mail directly to Bev Doucette for help in getting to Dr. Reich in N.Y. and/or a pain doctor in your area which you can also find @ http://www.widowmaker.com/~skipb/panic.html . Don't be put off by all the shouting on this page.
There is not way to deal with the pain except with pain meds or lysis of adhesions. You are not alone.
