Lisa, I have met twice with Dr. Jay Redan.  Although I have not had surgery with him, he is the most knowledgable doctor (regarding adhesions), that I have ever met.   When I finally reach the poin of no longer being able to deal with my issues, I will only allow Dr. Redan to do my surgery.   Katie   > Date: Thu, 25 Oct 2012 19:27:55 -0500
