Dear Michelle, I am also in the health care field and noone understands the pain we edur daily. i have suffered from adhesions now for about 22 years. had one surgery to get rid of them it only brought them back more intense.. i will not undergo another surgery for them i try to eat less at each meal and avoid all fiber ... that makes it worse... I use biofreeze to help with the pain that i have in my belly daily.. the bowel movements are not at all what they should be and i feel it but i go on daily because i have to income the number one reason there are days i want to just give it in but i say tommorrow will be a better day... you must go on and try to live with this condition in all my years involved in this site i have seen nothing that works with our condition.. drs do not understand nor do our peers... i wear loose clothing and just go on each day in my job.. I have worked in my current position for 18 years and I will not let this get the best of me.. Just hang in there and try different types of foods that agree with you. I drink lots of water daily an eat very little but enough to keep me going... i am not underweight or over weight i seem to maintain what i have.. THE ONE THING I KNOW IS I WILL NOT UNDERGO ANOTHER SURGERY .i do have bowel obstructions and feel the pain for days but i then take liquid drinks and it seems to pass and all is relieved.. do not let this get you down ok. You can live with it I have done it now for 20+ years no surgery not hospitlizations .. ITS MIND OVER MATTER ... i HOPE THIS HELPS YOU SOMEWHAT... NANCY IN NEW HAMPSHIRE.. XO Nancy
