Having recently finished a 47 day hospitalization which included 3 surgeries (1 for intestinal obstruction/perforation, 2 for infections) which brought my total to 13 since 2003 and I have some GREAT NEWS!!! First, Pain Management Specialists are a "must have Doc" and secondly, thanks to a Phase 4 study in Michigan I asked for Lyrica for pain relief and IT IS WONDERFUL. In fact it is so good that last week I forgot to take a dose but quickly remembered when I doubled over in the late afternoon. Yoga also seems to help stretch the incision line. As just a side note, my third surgery was just 11 days after the first and the adhesions were already back.
