Dear Kate, I hope you are feeling better. How did you end up with adhesions? I had an unneeded TAH in January, and I'm sure I'm filled with adhesions. Steady bad pain and pressure when standing, sitting,laying down, or even walking. I can't stand up straight. My belly still feels puffy. I've lost at least 15 lbs. So now I probably weigh about 101. I hate to see myself in the mirror. I wish I never let her touch me, but what can I do,now? She shrugged off the notion the pain/bowel problems are from surgery. She said irritable bowel, and laughed and called me her colicky baby . I am so disgusted with myself too. Maybe I already asked you, but what foods do you eat to try to prevent it from happening again? I need to find out what I can eat so I don't starve to death. Millie
