  We have all had doctors who told us that adhesion tissue is not painful. My answer was to say this: "So tell me doctor ______...what do adhesions adhere to? They adhere to our intestines, our abdominal wall, our uterus' if we are women, our bladder, our pelvic floor, our liver, etc...   These internal organs DO HAVE PAIN pain receptors and HURT LIKE HELL when the adhesions twist and pull and stretch these organs and tissues. Oh, and by the way...if the adhesions have been growing for a long time there have been cases where the adhesions themselves developed pain receptors. I suggest you take the time to do some research, and bring your knowledge up to date."  Then I stand up and walk out the door. I go find doctors who aren't living in the dark ages. 

I hope this helps!   Jeanette  > Date: Sat, 24 Nov 2012 12:37:47 -0600
