Dear Jen, I just read your posting and would like to slap-down your Dr. It basically sounds like he is trying to tell you that you are imagining your discomfort. I use to 'want' to believe it was all in my head, but my Dr was just the opposite, she made me sit down and listen. Sometimes I feel like she doesn't pay much attention to me anymore, but then I realize at this time there is very little she can do but try to keep me comfortable, so she fills my meds every month and lets me exist, but she won't let me go back to work, for my own good. But seriously, most Dr.s don't believe much in the adhesions and the pain associated therein. If it helps, research this site, print off some of our stories and testimonials, there is also some more 'clinical' info listed on the home pages of this IAS web site. Take some of this info to your Dr and show him we are real, this is a real disorder, and you are in pain. He can't ignore the facts, and if he does, then we will pray for a better Dr to be assigned to your case. Just don't be bullied Jen, and turn to this site for strength and comfort, you are not alone. God Bless and Take Care of You Tammy Lynn
