Rosemary, I am sorry that you feel lost. I also know what it is like when a doc tells you he won't operate on you anymore. I have been told that I would not have another operation to remove adhesions again (had3)unless I had a bowel obstruction (which in my case is very possible).

You need to find a specialist in your area. Maybe a colorectal surgeon.

Ask your GP if they know any adhesion specialists. You have to be your own advocate and keep searching until you can find a doc that will help you. I am going to see a chronic pelvic pain specialist on the 25th. I have had Seprafilm placed and it still doesn't work. This is what I did, I called all the pain clinics in the phone book asking if they have experience in chronic pelvic pain, until I found this one. Please make sure you ask this. Most pain specialist only deal with musculoskeletal pain(back pain, bone pain ,etc). I wish you the best.
