Dear Mike, I am so sorry to hear about your condition. I am surprised to hear, however, that the pain goes away for months at a time. When I had the adhesions, it was a constant thing, a sort of a tugging, full feeling which was always set off by too much exercise. This may be something else. Just a thought.
