How old is your daughter? If she does have adhesions I would get her to someone who deals with adhesions on a regular basis, like many of the Drs mentioned on this site. Of course she is at risk for more adhesions with all her surgeries, but I don't think it will hurt to talk to one of these specialist about her. My Dr happens to be Dr Clark Gerhart in Pa, but apparently there are other docs out their also. Where are you?  My experience with alternative techniques did not help at all, I'm not saying it won't for her, but I would be sceptical as you are about this. I know nothing about the Wurn technique, but?? Prior to my going to Pa to see Dr Gerhart, my Doctors here had me in PT, and I tried some types of Massage therapy. It actually made things worse, and I had to stop. Adhesions, as I'm sure you know, can really cause lots of problems. I have heard some people who have benifited from massage therapy and releasing of adhesions, but I have also heard of it making things worse. as it did in my situation. Good luck with this, Don't ever give up hope! You came to the right place for help with this. Marlene
