Wendy, Vent all you want.. That's why this site is here.. Do you have access to a good pain doctor..After my last surgery.. The Gi doc sent me to a pain specialist.. He luckily knew about adhesions and what I was going through.. Was the best thing! Fortunately they were able to put me on meds that are much less addictive at the time.. Gradually I've worked down on them..I'm not on any of the heavy duty meds at all anymore..Feel so much more normal..
