Your Dr., a female Dr. who knows your history - has "forgotten them" since your last visit??

And the exam that she gave you - to be so rough during an exam in which you were clearly uncomfortable - and then to continue ... wow - I don't know how

you could return to her.

The remarks about adhesion usually presenting as masses in the abdomen show's a high level of ignorance. Yes, adhesive masses can result when an ovary gets wrapped up in scar tissue and other organs, but absolutely in no way does a "mass" HAVE to be present for there to be massive adhesions. Believe me - my belly usually stays as soft as a pillow but the adhesions I have are as dense and massive as they come.

There are MANY different types of adhesions and your Dr. needs to do some education herself. I don't mind so much a Dr. asking for information a patient has heard about regarding something new, but she needs some serious education in adhesions before she puts her hands on you again. You'd do well to print out some additional literature for her on types and presentation's when you do the deep tissue massage info.

Best of luck to you DT
