Dear Kris, Pain meds are for people in pain. Only you can say if you need them. If you can live without them, it's better not to go down that path, but if the pain is so bad you can't function, and all you think about is pain and you start to get depresed because your pain is constant or periodically is so bad, you have to lay down and moan, then you deserve to and should be taking adequate pain medication in my opinion. I don't think any of us should have to live with pain if there is anything we can do about it. The medicines come with a price, literally and figuratively. They cost money, cause some people to feel nausea or sleepiness or constipation. Everybody is different. But please don't feel badly for asking for something to alleviate your pain. Please look at the adhesions web site, read the quilt, read the articles and old e-mails about pain especially those from Helen Dynda. There is a wealth of information at And one last very important comment, if you are thinking of adhesion surgery you need a specialist and the person who does the operation may be the biggest decision you make in your life. You need to really think about it first. And in my opinion, a laproscopic surgery is much less intrusive than an open, big cut that may casue more adhesions. Good luck, with kindest regards, Sally Grigg
