Shane's family is in New Brunswick. Fredericton and Saint John and then his father's maternal side is from Caraquet. But then CYR and McHUGH are common in NB anyway.

Thanks for the warning. Mark, my GP, is usually receptive to anything I put by him but this topic seems to make him cringe, don't know why but it does. You would think though that if they know surgery causes adhesions and from the amount I have had they would check for that first?
I'm going to make Mark sit down with me, even if I have to go to his place to do it and tell me why he doesn't think what I have is adhesions. I'm going to go armed with literature from the site and point out to him all the factors that point to my pain being adhesions and see what he says.
Then I'll let you all know what happens.

That's where we differ, Nancy, because I have had nothing but the best health care here. The NHS in the UK doesn't hold a candle to the health care here. I guess I've been spoilt because Mark is a friend and my GP and he makes sure I get the best specialists. Now lets see if he can follow through with this.
I'll keep you posted, OK?
