Sally, I am living in the San Francisco Bay Area also and am looking for a doctor for my adhesion pain. I appreciated your feedback about Stanford. Have you found anyone else that can acknowledge your symptoms and help? Tomorrow I go to an OB in Walnut Creek- Dr. Walker. We'll see what she says....Thanks, Julie Johns
