Dear Robin, I was reading your post and then one thing kinda struck me. A lot of us have the most wonderful husbands. They are there for us and do the things we can't do and when we are sick they take care of us. Maybe "the Guy upstairs" figured with all the problems we have he would give us our own angels on earth. It's just a thought but I know my husband is my angel. Your friend, Jan

Dear Shawnna I also have trouble with my bladder because of adhesions. I had constant presure & had to go all the time. With decreased stream. I had to push to start & then just dribble, then cough & pee like crazy & using pads. My Dr just put me on Detrol LA. It has helped a great deal. At times, I have to use a cane to help me walk. Especially when my intestines aren't working, the pain is much worse. I also have problems with my knees. The inside of the knee cap is rubbing on the femur, on both knees. I am 41, but most days, I feel twice as old. Also I can relate about the sex. I did sleep a bit better last night, but I was up several times last night. I am very lucky because I have a great DR. She always makes sure I have enough pain meds & is always learning more about adhesions, even though I am her only patient that suffers from them. I am also very lucky I have a WONDERFUL husband! He cooks, he cleans, does laundry and even windows! We have been married going on 19 years. But together for almost 24 years. He fixes my dinner plate most of the time so I don't have to get up to do it my self. He is so good to me & never lets me feel like he is tired of hearing about the pain & stuff because of the adhesions. He knows so much about adhesions, you would think he was the one with them. Thanks for listening to me ramble on. love robin M
