Hi Toni: This is so weird. I am almost never here, but this afternoon decided to check in to see if Toni is still here and how she is doing and I find Helen posting my fleets tips and you saying hello. Whether or not the general surgeon was successful for me or not is still a big question. Don't know if my problems were due to adhesions or not. I certainly had them and he said he fixed them. I still have occasional pain, nothing like before, and I am sure the current pain is from my back. Whether it was before or not-who knows? He used ringer's lactate and the only way to tell if they reoccurred would be to go in and look I guess. If they have reformed, they are not causing major problems. If I ever have to have another colonoscopy I won't have it until someone decides what direction my sigmoid colon is going in! The last time it was plastered to my right pelvic wall, no wonder the procedure hurt. I read your post about surgeon's attitudes about having another doctor in with them. The general surgeon who did my second lap would not do it *without* my gyn being present. It sounds like you are doing okay! I am, although I now have arm tendonitis and cardiac problems to deal with.
Best wishes, Chris S.
