I am so glad that you didn't let this doctor stop you in your search for relief. I wish there could be more educated doctors on it too. I guess I was blessed with doctors who believe adhesions cause pain. I am glad that you have the other appointment with the woman doctor. We will be praying that this will be the compassionate, caring, trustworthy doctor that you need in your search for relief.
