P.J., I am so sorry you are suffering so much and feel no one believes what you are saying. I have been there. I work with a pain specialist and have been for over 4 yrs and I understand fully what you are saying. Once the medical profession sees you have a pain specialist working with you, they assume you are there for one purpose only and that is to get more drugs. That is not the case at all.

Unfortunately there are no medical tests to confirm that the patient has adhesions, unless the surgeon determines it neccessary to go in. The best way to combat this problem is by going to the website and print out a copy of the letter Dr. Wiseman wrote specifically for your doctor and any other doctors out there that need to know this information. I know Dr. Wiseman is doing the best he can to inform the medical community about this debilitating disease, but unfortunately, he is only one person and that is an awful large task.

We all need to come together and fight for our rights as patients. Is there a support group in your state? You can find out at the adhesions website too. If not in your community, then you should think about starting up one. I am. We all need to be there for each other here on this website and in our own community.

There is a wonderful surgeon you can see who maybe able to help you. One is Dr.Gerhart who's website is:, the other is Dr. Jay Redan who works at celebration hospital in Celebration Florida. His website is the picture of celebration hospital on adhesions website too. Also you definitely need to find a good pain specialist in your area to help you deal with this pain until you can find a good surgeon. I hope this will help you. If you ever need anything, let me know Ok?
