I'm trying to answer all my email here and my pain meds are finally kicking in so if I say something stupid you'll know why? <grin>
So maybe, when they gave me the barium meal/X-ray to check out why I was still having pain after my appendectomy, they assumed it was adhesions because they weren't sure? In 1971 I can see that happening.
But I do remember the pain and the sensation around my scar when I would try to get up from a sitting position or after I had been sat in an awkward position. It really felt like my insides were stuck and every time I tried to straighten up to a standing position the pain would be unbearable plus there was a tearing like sensation.
I think I'm going to have to seriously sit down with Mark and go over it all with him.
Thanks for the tip.
