I don't know of any in Milwaukee, but I'm an hour and half drive south with GREAT doctors! I live in the NW suburbs of Chicago, and my internist not only believes that my problems stems from the adhesions, but also makes an effort to help me with the pain.

What you're describing sounds extreme enough to warrant surgery to clean things up. Yes, I know there's a danger of it coming back, but when the adhesions are strangling your insides, you have to get rid of them.

Hugs to you. I'm thinking of you.
