I'm sorry it's just that I keep seeing all of these surgery posts and every
one keeps getting more and more surgeries and their adhesions seem to be
getting worse. Some days I would love to have surgery just to have a few
days relief but in my heart I know that I will have worse pain. I know my
pain is worse since the last surgery so I have to wait it out if I can to
see how the Spray Gel works.Fortunately I have a good pain management doc
who is trying to give me relief. I am unfortunately dealing with a lot of
anger over this adhesion stuff but I keep telling myself there are other
people out there that suffer with other things like your Godson that have it
worse off. I have a 4 year old nephew that has 4 cysts on his brain.(one is
in the center) They are putting a shunt in soon and he will have to wear a
helmet all of the time.
I don't know what the answer is on having surgery Sally. You could have it
and feel better the rest of your life or you could have it and be in worse
pain. I don't know. All I know is that it seems like there doesn't seem to
be very many people that feel better for very long of a time.
I am trying the "block" next Thursday and if that doesn't work then I don't
know where I will go from there. I get 2-3 hours of sleep a night and I eat
pudding or yogurt every day. I've lost about 14 lbs in about a month and I
had to quit my job that I liked.
I don't know how you run your Inn and I can see how you need some sort of
Do you know how the results are from the Germany surgeries? If these are
good results, I would do it in a New York Minute.
When was your last surgery?
I will be in California next month. I am going to a Angel game and renting
a Condo in San Diego on the beach on the 9th of August. That's why I am
hoping the "block" will give me some relief before I go so I can enjoy
myself with my family. How far are you from San Diego?
I'm sorry for being so negative about surgery but I have been "hopeless"
about a cure for these darn things. Who Know!! Maybe the Spray Gel is the
You need to do what you feel is right for you.
I will pray for your godson

Dear Kel, Hi, its been awhile since we've "talked" I'm sorry you are in such
pain, and you are probably right. Each surgery gives you more pain. But what
about being so big its disgusting, I feel like a ten pound baby should come
popping out. It's a real challenge to find clothes to emphasize my lovely
small hips and smallish waist which expands to a watermelon. I'm still
trying to be presentable here at the old homestead. I have found a few
things that look nice, and I know that's not really a priority, but when I
look okay, I feel better. It also helps the Inn.
Maybe I should wait, the indecision is hard, going back and forth, yes,
definitely, no definitely not. The pain is making me crazy but I'm learning
a lilttle bit how to deal with it and my Godson's accident has rearranged
everything I thought was important including myself and my problems.
I hope you feel better. Keep in touch. Love and hugs, Sally
