Hello, i can't recall if i have responded to you or not previously, but i have had surgeries on two occasions at Magee Womens Hospital in Pittsburgh, one by Dr. Mansuria and other just recently by Dr. Sukumvanich. Both are very good surgeons. I have been pleased with both of their work, but as we all know, adhesions return no matter what, but i can say that from the first time i was worked on by Mansuria, I did do pretty well for about 18 months afterwards. This time around (my seventh abdominal/pelvic surgery) i seem to be some improved but not as well as i had hoped, but heck, things are so advanced with nerve damage etc. that i wasn't expecting a miracle. At least the cysts that were encassed in the adhesions have been removed and i can eat some better.
I wish you lots of luck and prayers too. Dawn

I just had a laparascopy with Dr. Edward Domingez at Riverside Methodist Hospital. He is a wizard with adhesions and has an understanding of what this disease does to us. Compassion is the term I and my PCP came up with. If you are interested contact me by e-mail and I will provide you further info...
