Hi Tamara-

My name is Shannon and I live in Missouri. I have been suffering with severe and constant pain which began in 1997 with my first surgeries and escalated to the misery I am in today. I have had multiple surgies (3 c- sections, ovary removed, gallbladder removed, adhesions removed- which came back with a vengence). Doctors want to perform more surgery and I refuse because I know that will be the end of me. I have been through all the tests too and they are always negative. I don't know why doctors refuse to believe that adhesions are responsible for my pain. Currently I am taking Lortab, but I have to take too much to get any relief. I have also tried MS Contin in a low dose and it didn't help much either. I hope you can get help and any questions you have, please ask me. I have been going down this road for a few years now. Good Luck- Shannon
