It is in your best interest to give your body time to heal before they will go in and try an adhesiolysis. Your body really needs to recover before they even can determine that the pain you are having is adhesions and not surgical. I have often had to wait at least six months between surgeries before the doctor would consider going in. It doesn't matter how much pain you are in....just if it is an emergency situation.
You will be amazed at how you can wait! I joined this group in November of 1999. I told Bev that there was no way that I could wait until February to have my surgery. I knew that I would die before than....or that if I had to suffer anymore I would kill myself. Next thing I knew it was April and still no surgery....then July and while I was scheduled for surgery on the 12th...I had problems with cardiac and respiratory arrest and the surgery was aborted. At that time I just wanted to die...because there was NO way in hell I could continue to livein the pain I was in. I have rather impatiently waited for the surgery to be rescheduled....and the first one has.....April 2nd. I have known about it since the beginning of January and feel that there is no way that I can handle the pain until that time. And the pain is intense...even the morphine is not helping. No, I cannot make it that long....I will die....but somehow I do make it.....and you can too!
