Hi, I know where how you feel and I may have an answer/cure. I had the top specialists in Boston (when I LIVED THERE AND HAD HEALTH INSURANCE) The surgeons tried everything! Yes, I get adhesions every where in my abdomen- intestines, liver, all organs. They started after my first pelvic abdominal surgery for endometriosis and got worse after each surgery resulting in more surgeries to remove them. I had a complete hysterectomy and appendix removed and should have had my bowels and bladder removed but begged the doctor not to. I had 11 surgeries in 11 years. It has been 10 years since my last surgery because I found what works for me and when I get better and stop this treatment they gradually come back. I take a lot of shark cartilage capsules each day plus fish oil(it helps the body uptake and use the shark) The dosage is one 740mg capsule per 15 lb of body weight and 2 fish oil capsules per day. You will know it is working when your pain dissipates. I would get so much pain I couldn't sleep or walk it felt like someone was slicing me up with knives inside and then the nausea, constipation and swollen hardened abdomen that is painful to have even clothes touching! Within a month you should feel a major difference in pain and symptom relief I can tell it is working in only a couple of days. STay on it for life! I went off it after 8 years recently and am now back to crazy adhesions so I started it up again and I can tell it is working. You can get the shark cartilage cheapest at either or arthritis pain has also gone away and my bone density has improved! now if only I could find an answer for my LUPUS and Fibromyalgia I could feel vibrant again) At Fri, 20 Nov 2009, Alta wrote: >
