Marianne do you have nausea very often? I've noticed it some lately too, though it is very mild. What were your adhesions caused by? I gather you have not had a Hysterectomy as you mentioned your fallopian tubes. I'm still having trouble with remembering everyone's stories. I need to make time to go over to the site and read the stories on the quilt. I've been there but it has been awhile. If you start to use the flaxseed, just be sure to get the ground up flax meal (I buy it in the refrigerated section at the health food store). I've heard that the whole flax seeds can be very irritating. I like the vanilla soy milk best - the plain isn't bad when mixed with other things, but I can't swallow it by itself. The coffee and chocolate flavors aren't bad though. Yes, maybe my adhesions do run all the way from my toe to my butt - or at least if they don't now they probably will by the time they get through carving on my toe! The doctor plans to remove my nail root so I will never have a toenail on that toe again. At this rate I will be more disfigured than the Elephant Man! Maybe I can apply for work at the circus in their freak show! I've always liked painting my toenails, but I guess 9 bright pink ones and one bald one won't look the greatest. Maybe I'll check in on some press on toenails. Rosie
