Dear Scott, Of course, men are welcome to the adhesions site. Jim Lynch is one of the people who you may contact. It seems as if not too many Drs. want to address the adhesion issue. They back off like we have the plague. Two in particular that I consulted with told me to see a shrink. Not the way to deal with adhesions and pain. I can tell you that surgery is not the answer, as there is no proven cure for adhesions, and cutting can make the existing problem worse. You are right in seeing a pain specialist. Good luck and let us know how you're doing. Millie.
