The website seems to want to censor me when I offer this simple advice, but I DO KNOW....I have had adhesions since 1983, but I made up my mind that I would not let the dang "condition" imprison" me...
Think about what makes sense..all of you...The adhesions are causing you pain and some elimination problems..Correct? - - If you shake things up a bit in your "area of concern", and keep things moving smoothly, however slowly, then things will get better for you....This is something that doctors, and people who get paid for giving you advice, do not want you to know because what I am saying is FREE, and most people have an agenda.
The adhesions will always be there, but if you manage your weight, and lifestyle and attitude in a moderate way, your discomfort will hardly ever again be noticed.
It takes courage and determination. I am glad that those of us who have this
condition have this website. At the same time, I am very disappointed that the moderator does not offer similar suggestions....
