I got your message posted on bombo's message board and replied there too ;-). I am so sorry you are feeling like this right now, but what I want to emphasise on here, as I did in my reply to you on bombo is DON'T give up! DON'T let the doctors fob yu off like that!
We also know thay scans & x-rays DON'T show adhesions!! Only a diagnostic laperascopic surgery can give the doctor a TRUE indication of what is REALLY happening inside your body!
Go and read my reply to you on bombo Robin, and if you want more help from me, write to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do whatever I can to help you.
I am sorry I haven't been on the board much lately, a trip to Sydney last week and hightened pain levels are making it difficult for me to keep up with all my friends from the IAS board. I may be going back into hospital for some pain relief in the next few days.... my pain meds have just been increased, so we will see what happens and IF they help bring my pain under control..... the horrible stabbing ones with my body covered in "hot spots" where my pain is it's worst!
Robin, don't let this latest knock back pull you down, let it give you energy, let it make you mad, mad enough to do something to make a difference for you..... it will help you find he right doctor for you...the one that will go to bat for you & do all he/she can to get you comfortable & well.....
