 Hi Ginger, I am curious if you ever went ahead with the phenol injection? I have been suppose to go to OHSU in  Portland, Or. to see about Celious Plexis block injections. I have had to keep putting it off because of no health insurance.  I will finally have health ins. on Dec. 1st. I will be seeing 2 specialists at OHSU for a consult to decide what may be best for me. I hear that the Celious Plexis Block will lessen my pain, but probably not take it away because my adhesions are more intense than the other patients my Gastro has. Oh JOY! So just for more research and info, I am wondering how it all went for you. At this time ant type of surgery is just not an option! I don't have it in me to have any surgeries. I have had my Mom offer to pay for me to go back to Germany to see Dr. K. for surgery again. I have complete faith in him. I am not ready that's all. I have been through too many surgeries (12). If there was a complete guarantee I would hop right on the gurney and go for it. I hope that it was a success for you. When you can, will you please let me/all of us on this site know how it went for you. Take care, and thanks, Cheryl D.
