My doctor is Abdelkadar Hawasli.  His office is in St. Clair Shores, MI and he operates out of St. John Hospital in Detroit.   He told me I'd most likely be back for more lysis of adhesions because my body produces so many.   I do have a glimpse of hope though.  Over the years I've been twice to two different pain clinics.  They tried the usual celius plexus block and something else, but it didn't do any good.  Finally one of the doctors there told me the real fix for me was have one of my visceral nerves cut so that I wouldn't feel any pain from my insides.  He implied it was borderline unethical and that I would have a hard time finding a doctor to do it since I wouldn't know if I were to have a heart attack or bowel obstruction.   Well I brought this up to Dr. Hawasli and he's sending me to a thorasic surgeon who does robotic surgery and told me to tell him that he would operate with him to cut my splanatic (or sympathic) nerve.  He did tell me the criteria is high for such a procedure, but he is willing.  He even personally spoke to the thorasic surgeon so he knows all about me.  My appointment is June 12th.  I'm hopeful they have something to offer me.  This is something I've waited for all my life.    Wish me luck!

I certainly believe adhesions are causing the horrible pain I have throughout my abdomen.   Since they press/wrap around nerves and vital organs/intestines, in my estimation they're definitely causing the pain.  I know if I didn't have adhesions I wouldn't have all this excruciating pain.  Dr. Redan gave me a video of the surgery he did on me; however, the adhesions reformed.   I've misplaced my video or left it with a doctor...I don't know which.    Who did your surgery?  How are you doing?  I hope the lysing of the adhesion helps stop your pain.

I totally disagree.  I know adhesions do cause pain.  I've had about 6 hernia repairs and I swore up and down that the hernia was back again and when my doc did laprascopic surgery it turned out that it was a great big, long adhesion.  I even saw the picture of it before he cut it down.  Adhesions can and do cause pain.  Don't let anyone tell you different!

Adhesions themselves do not cause pain but when they are dense, they "glue" your intestines together or to your stomach wall. They get on organs and constrict.  I can feel my intestines pulling way down in the vaginal area. I am supposed to get a Morphine Pump.  Would you recommend it?

Cheryll, I haven't yet gone to Dr. Cook but I like what he says he can do for people with adhesions.  His website is:  He explains the different kinds of adhesions and the procedure he uses to remove the adhesions that are actually causing the pain.  He does the procedure laparoscopically while the patient is awake.  I'm no doctor so I don't know how he can do it while one is awake.  In any event, I did speak to one of his staff who was very informative.  She said Dr. Cook is a very compassionate man and wants to help those of us who are suffering with painful adhesions.
