CINDY: Re: adhesions in bowels

Hello Cindy:

Welcome to the adhesions site. You will find loads of information and a whole lot of support and understanding here, maybe even some guidance.

Some of us have suffered from partial bowel obstructions, some from complete obstructions. Some have colitis, some endometriosis, some Chron's, but we all to one extent or another have adhesions and all of the side effects of that, along with the chronic unremittant pain. Some of us have been able to find drug therapy for pain control, some have found partial or even total relief from the pain through surgery. Some of us are still waiting, hoping, and praying for some semblance of a "normal" life, which we have lost to one extent or another through "chronic non-malignant pelvic pain" and our doctors' inability or unwillingness to treat us or help us find treatment.

Please feel free to browse through the links on the IAS web page and print out any information you find that you think may be helpful to you in getting your doctors to listen. Most all members of the forum have posted their stories on the Adhesions Quilt, and you are welcome to add yours there too.

We will do our best to answer any questions you may have, offer solutions based on what has worked or not worked for us, listen when you want to rant rave and cry, or just be here for you.

I hope this is a good day for you.
