Thank you for your post, I would think at least to run a few tests again, the apin I have been having is getting no better. You have been through so much, I cannot imagine 26 surgeries. The next one I would have would be #11. But that wa over a period of 22 years. Seven were laparotpmies, and the rest of them were laparoscopies.

I am right now smoking way to much for one thing to go under, I am already having trouble breathing, since my father in law got so bad, I knew I had to wait. I was doing so good until he got so sick with the cigarettes, I am ashamed of myself. I told my husband to see what he is going through with cancer, and we still light them. I am planning on the patch, but if my husband does not stop, it is too hard for me, along with so much stress comes too many cigarettes.

karla, do you know when your surgery is going to be? I have been thinking of all of you , but been so busy with my father in law, and my husband, it is getting so hard to deal with my problems. I am trying!
