Re: does exercise aggravate adhesions~to marianne & shali

I wanted to thank you both for your response. My husband wants me to exercise again (because he doesn't like to do it by himself), but I guess I just will not risk it. He is so tired of my complaining all the time. I know not to say anything else anymore, because I am afraid he will just roll his eyes at me. Don't get me wrong, he is very sweet, but is just frustrated because I brush him off at night. Plus we can't "spoon" anymore at night, because his heavy arm hurts my belly.

Oh well, guess I will not go back on the "Total Gym". What a waste of money, but I don't want the pain to get worse and I know it will not get any better by doing it. I'll try some things such as walking and stuff.

Thanks again ladies. HEIKE
