I am just like you and did have adhesions show up on a ct scan...but like I told Toni they were inflamed.

As far as pain management I am taking darvocet, ultram, vicodin es, and a fentanyl patch 50mg. They are all narcotics (not all too sure of the ultram). I just alternate every two hours between the darvocet and the vicodin and every 8 hours take 2 ultram. I usually take 2 vicodin when I take them.

Hope I helped..
