I agree. I only have been talking to Dr. Gerhart because I want an alternative plan in gear for when my bowels (or if) they end up like before. I also am trying to seek legal info. to get it covered through my under-insured on my insurance from when I had my auto accident...if I don't act know...limitations time run out...I need something on file-legally to protect myself. The doc is going to write a note on it for my lawyer saying it's 51/49 probable that the car accident caused the adhesions. That's good news for me...trying to get chiro covered, too. After all, the symptoms started just two months after the accident. Good idea? Someone mentioned it to me. I've decided to pursue. I lost my car nothing and the other driver has never been caught, so, I might as well have my insurance take care of the probs that I think he caused.
