Hi Deb, I know only too well what you are going thru. I had severe adhedsions that were ruining my life in 2002-2003. It was so bad that I could not work anymore and each day was mirerable. Then I had laproscopic surgery in the Fall of 2003, and my life has been soo much better since. I don't think that someone who has not experienced the pain that you are going thru can really relate. Far too many Doctors believe that adhesions don't hurt, or that the patient is just seeking pain meds. All we want is to have our life back. We just want to get up in the morning, go to work and NOT be in unbearable pain.
I will say a prayer that you get relief from your surgery and that things go well for you. I do not have any experience with the other symptoms that you mentioned, but perhaps your body is trying to compensate for what it needs. Good Luck to you and God be with you.........Jeanne
