Hugs right back to you. It's just too bad that there aren't any Dr's that can feel our pain, They always tell me adhesions don't cause pain. I tell them to try living in my body for a while then tell me that.  I'm at the point where Dr's are just idiots.  They always want to blame the pain on the depression and they just don't get it's the pain causing the depression. take care!

OMG, I cried when I read your stories here on this site! I am not alone!!! I had my first surgery to remove adhesions from my C section in August of 2010.  I got pregnant after that and had another C section. This past May, I had surgery to remove adhesions again after the pain was so bad I was in the ER.  Some of the pain in coming back and I am making arrangements to have my tubes tied and adhesions removed for the third time.  It it extremely difficult to do anything some days.  I get pain all the way into my leg so that I can barely stand or walk.  Before i had my surgery in 2010, I was put on intermittent medical leave from work because I had to miss so much work sue to the pain I was in.  I am just so happy that I am not alone!! I have felt like I am alone because no one can see my pain or knows what its like.  I have felt like I'm the bad guy, making it up to get out of whatever I have going on.  I AM NOT! I want to hug each and everyone of you!!
