Hi Brenda:

I'm sorry - I forget - are you in Ontario?

I have no idea how reliable this info is, but I've been told that Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto has a new Pelvic Health Centre. Let mw find you the site. I'll post it in a few minutes. The phone # is 416-323-7545.

I was thinking of going to someone there to see IF they believed the adhesions attaching my colon to my peritoneum were the cause of my pain.

Surely to God they will be able to find someone to help you with pain management.

Prayers and hugs,


P.S. As someone who's lived in the good old US of A, gals, I really believe it's worse here. At least in the US if you've got the $$ you get SOME form of treatment.
