If you don't believe something will work it surely won't. I have to believe, because we are out of options and I am dyeing. So belief and a strong will on my doctor and my part is all that keeps me and my family going rite now. He is constantly adding treatments and dose not think my body can do it itself rite now as my letter said, he keeps searching for new alternatives, and I research them before trying them, we do not go on the belief that my body alone can do it or I wouldn't need him, we just believe that surgery only makes me worse and so we must try other things. And we know that the human body when operating efficiently dose heal itself if the trauma is not to big. I am not here to disclaim anyone else's solutions, just to say we are all different, and we all need support , advice from me or anyone should be taken as just that , not law but advice, take it or leave it believe or don't . What works for you may not for me and the other way around. I do not think I know more then anyone else, but if everyone here had found the perfect solution, we would not need this message board. Only God or whoever you believe in as your higher power knows all the answers. All Doctors simply practice and some are better then others , I would never tell someone that a doctor they believe in is wrong, I don't know them or their doctor. What ever works for you is great, same for me, whatever works. Peace to you Jen

May all your days be the like the cool rain...

I, too, am glad that you have a doctor that you feel comfortable with, but I am in total agreement with Nancy. Adhesions do not go away. The only good thing about adhesions is that they stop forming within a couple of weeks after the event that caused their formation, whether it be surgery or abdominal trauma. In the past there have been NO barriers that have proven to be effective either. But, now there is hope. SprayGel has proven to be effective on a number of people. Unfortunately, it is not yet available in the U.S. People are having to travel to Germany to get it...which in and of itself is not a bad thing seeing as Dr. Korell is one of only a small handful of doctors capable of successfully dealing with adhesions. To all you new people, there are thousands of doctors out there who can remove adhesions and will do so at the drop of a hat, but I can count on one hand the doctors that are skilled enough to at least reduce their reformation. If you have doctors who are refusing to do surgery for you count your blessings. I know that you don't want to continue to live in pain, but the length of time that you will be without pain will be brief and chances are quite likely that when it returns it will be worse then ever. A doctor who says no is the best thing you have going for you until you can get to a doctor who knows what he is doing and can use the SprayGel.

Dear Jennifer:

<snip> I have a wonderful integrated internal meds

Dr. and he tells me if the rest of my body can get well, (including my mind set) then adhesions will go away by themselves naturally, but because the rest of me is so sick my body cannot attack them rite now.

I am glad you have found a doctor you think is wonderful, but my personal opinion is that your doctor is deluding himself. Adhesions will not go away by themselves naturally any more than scar tissue on the outside of your body will go away naturally. I have had adhesions for 40 years, the rest of my body and mind is perfectly healthy, and the adhesions have only gotten worse and caused more problems. I have tried herbal teas and medicines, and until a year ago was extremely active. The pain caused by the adhesions has now gotten so bad that I can't even do my own housework.

Good luck to you Jennifer. Prayers and good thoughts.
