Thank you for your concern. Do they burn ??? Do they pull on you ? It's as if sometimes I can even rub them out... a little. After reading a lot of these messages I seem to be better then a lot of these people; mine are only occassional but when they flair up sometimes..whow !!

No need for a doctor. What can they do ? It's been this long and I'm still alive. By the way, did your adhesions seem to get worse as time went on ? I know they can grow.

I run marathons; ultra marathons. The exercise helps a lot. Takes my mind off of them when I'm having these "spells". Quess that I can't be that sick if I can run 30+ miles. However, it's just the pain. And I have always wondered about the stress, the worry. I believe that one feeds on the other.

Sometimes it's that if I worry about them ( the adhesions ) a lot, they tend to get worse. Familiar ?

Take care. Any more info would help.
