Susan--I wanted to get rid of my extra pounds because it seemed that as long as I looked overweight and out of shape, it was too easy for the pain management folks to write off my complaints to my personal fitness. So, I wanted that card off of the table. I've been going to Weight Watchers and feel that they have a good program. My loss of 25 pounds (been on maintenance for a year) didn't do anything for the pain, but I feel a bit more spry and am happier with the way I look. So, I can't tell you that weight loss lessens adhesion pain but in my case, it has removed one of the "probable causes of pain" that docs see when they look at me. shouldn't be this way....but like I said....I just wanted that card off the table.
