Paula, Find a different doctor. Start doing your own research anywhere, anyway you can. Gather as much information as you can and start looking for a different doctor. Until you find one that understands you and you are comfortable with, you will feel like you are defeated.
Living with chronic pain, adhesions or whatever, it is a must to take control of your own destiny. Don't let your chronic pain become your identity.
It is only a part of you. Don't let the doctor rule your destiny. Get tough and stay tough. Find a swimming pool and float, that will relieve alot of your pain. I've been there, I am in a remission from pain but may get the adhesions back. My last surgery to remove adhesions was November 26th, 2003.
I instruct water aerobics, got started to control my adhesions pain. It works. Let me know, I care, kim
