Adhesions form within the first couple of days after surgery. That is why Dr. Korell in Germany is doing the second-look procedures. As was posted earlier, when he did the second-look on Mary Pomroy a week following the surgery he was able to see new adhesions that had reformed. It sounds like it is time to educate your doctors with the facts about adhesions. You also have the right to demand appropriate pain are shouldn't have to live like this.

My advise is to arm yourself with all the information you can gather from this site regarding adhesions. At the same time copy the patient's rights information and take it with you. Tell them that you have the right to receive the proper treatment and that it is illegal for them to withhold it from you. Go to and you will find all the info you need.

You sound so much like just need to stand tall in the saddle and not let them intimidate you.
