Hi Millie,

Aw Millie, I was mortified to hear of your treatment. I know it's hard to stay strong at this time as well, but maybe your partner could ring the surgeon and ask EXACTLY why the operation was so extensive? At least this type of answer could set your mind at ease. Adhesions can most certainly cause a blockage, but also know, that the reason your body is reacting in this way could be from a variety of valid medical reasons.

Please know that you are not alone. Please let us know where abouts you are, so some members here can direct you to someone who may be a little more knowledgeable and compassionate. You are worth it.

Your pain pal Trace xo
