Hey, Michelle I know how you feel, im 26 years old and have had two surgeries to remove adhesions. and i can feel them growing back. i see a lot of doctors, that know very little about adhesions. all that they want to do is give me pain killers and we all know that it is back for the long term. Ive had a total hysterectomy because of the adhesions. its fun every time i have adhesion removal surgery the doctor always feels so happy with him self, and tells me that the adhesions will not grow back. but they do, so i kept looking for a doctor that can really help me. and i see no end in sight to all of this. so good luck with all your surgeries, and maybe God will bless us all with a cure. thanks for your post, it helps to know that im not alone. God bless kim
