Hi there, thanks for your replies... I live in B.C., Canada, where we are currently having a health care strike and many procedures per day are being will be a long wait at best ONCE I get someone to agree to going back in for these I am hesitant to start over with a new doc at this point AND my dr says there isn't anyone in our area that deals specifically with adhesions.....I am currently have to take demerol when the pain is very bad and don't want to live this way, I really want my gyn's partner to agree to do a lap at least when I see her next week, I just don't know how to convince her other then my obvious pain??
