Dear Angela: Sounds very familiar to my own experience. And I do feel for you. I am in the midst of trying to get help for my own adhesion/bowel problems at the time and it's hard to get anyone to believe you. I wish I had some advice, but I don't. In fact, if anyone out there knows any good words of wisdom, pass them on to Angela and me, as well. Take care, Gloria
