Oh Bobby, darn those adhesions. So sorry to hear the bad news about the surgery. See if they can get your pain clinic appoinment moved up for you, September is a long time to wait for help with your pain. I do hope that your surgeon will keep you comfortable until that time. He better keep you comfortable!!!! Now, please let me know why you developed an abcess from the surgery? Why do you have to be cut open and left open to heal? This sounds terrible.
