You need to find a GOOD pain management specialist who will try everything to help with your pain. Secondly, if you have any more surgeries, please have a doc that specializes in adhesions.  I would not go to a dr. that says adhesions don't cause pain. I feel for you, I struggle daily even with pain management but hope to some day be free of these.
