Dear Mary Ann, I'm sorry, its too late for this doctor's visit, but I would suggest that you go to the adhesions site and read the quilts stories, then all of the other information. It's a lot, but you need to know. Nobody knows why some people get adhesions, and some don't, and some do, but they don't hurt. It's a big mystery at this point. One thing is certain. It's not all in your mind and lots of surgeries make it worse. Good luck, Love, Sally Grigg

I have an appointment with my internist this evening. He's trying very hard to help me through this, though he is mostly trying to treat the symptoms. I believe there is an underlying reason for why I get so many adhesions. Anyone have any suggestions on what tests to request or know of any underlying causes to adhesions?

I no longer have a uterus or ovaries. I don't have endometriosis. The extent of the problem lends one to think there might be something autoimmune happening, but my ANA came up negative.

Any help is appreciated.
