I even had a certified herbalist friend give me a list of herbs an herbalist

doctor said would dissolve adhesions. The combination of herbs cost me over

$100. I tried them for a month but didn't notice any change. I couldn't afford to continue to take them. I asked my pain specialist if he believed herbs could dissolve adhesions and he said no. So many doctors are just looking to make money off from our pain and suffering. I wish I lived in a State where Marinol is available for pain. Unfortunately, only those who are dying get it. This makes absolutely no sense. Those of us who are in pain should be able to get whatever available pain medication helps/stops the pain.

What's a "normal life?" I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired! God Bless!
