I am sure you will find that you will be feeling so much better in the next couple weeks. Hang in there the surgery does help - at least that is what i have found....

ender: firstname.lastname@example.org (Christine Petrie) ubject: Finally had to have surgery After many years of having bowel obstructions and pain I have given in nd had surgery for my adhesions. This was not an operation I took ightly , but the final straw came about 2 weeks ago when I had a really asty and painful obstruction.I had been having obstructions at 2 week ntervals . It cleared with Gastrographin. I dont know if any of you ave heard of it but it is used in New Zealand hospitals as the first ospital treatment to clear obstructions. It is a contrast dye so when n xray is taken it shows the small bowel clearly and can show very learly any obstruction and it also clears the bowel. had the surgery a few days later . I have had a full cut down my tomach and had 30staples. The surgeon said that 10per cent of my small owel was adhered to the pelvic wall and there were loops also. I am oping that this op will keep things at bay for a while. I know that his is not a cure but even if I get some relief I will be happy. Right ow I am in quite a bit of pain and feeling sorry for myself and I hope his will soon pass, I wonder wheather it will. I am on Tramadol and it akes me want to sleep all the time and I hate that. I really appreciate this site as we all understand what it is like to uffer with adhesions. hanks for reading hristine
