Lidocane Infusions, The last one I had I got 4/5 days of great pain relief. I wish some one else would try these. There is one girl where I am getting these infusions who also has ARD. I was going every other week but I would like to try every week if its possible. If you have nerve pain, these infusions will calm it down. Its just getting it to last longer. When they wear off I am right back where I started, and its very depressing. I do use a tens unit also but I have never put it on my abdomen. I don't think I could take that. It does take your mind of of your abdomen and draws attention to the tingling. For me it works on my lower and upper back, I also have put it on my leg near the groin. I will take any relief I can get. Cheryl please see if you can get these any where and anybody else who is willing to give it a try. I wish us all pain free days Debbie NY

After 5 weeks of the worst pain I have ever experienced with adhesions, the pain in FINALLY starting to let up a bit. I feel like an emotional mess since I had the Celiac PLexus Block. I can't believe I have missed over 1 month of my life. This whole experience has really done a number on me. I don't want to go anywhere alone. I used to have my Husband drop me off at one store while he ran to another. The other day I told him I didn't want to be alone could we go to each place together? He said no problem. I feel so dependent on him, and I cry a lot. People should NEVER have to go through this type of horrible pain and be expected to deal with it.
I went to a Comprehensive Pain Clinic yesterday. They hooked up a Tens unit and sent me home with it. After about 4 hours I had enough. It feels as if it agrivates my pain and intensifies it. They want me to do physical therapy, work with a Psychiatrist, and find ways to learn to deal with this pain since it will never go away. Evetually they may look into a pain pump. Right now I am not thrilled with any of it especially any type of exercises, we all know what it does to us. I just don't have it in me to even cooperate with them. I'm not trying to be stubborn, just emotionally I can't. I am crying while writing this. My Husband thinks that exercise would be great for me and is very excited about me trying the program the Pain Center is offering. I just want to be left alone right now. Does anyone understand me? this? Eventually some day when we have money ahead again, I will have adhesion surgery again. Thanks for reading this. Only people that deal with ARD truely understand what it is to go through our lives this way. Cheryl
