Hi Meg,Sorry to hear that you have to have surgery.I hope that
everything goes well for you with the adhesion barrier.When is surgery
scheduled for? What barrier is the Dr. useing? My hopes are with you
that this works for you. My pain management Dr. has me walking a
couple miles a day and swimming 5-6 laps 4-5 x's a week.Which is going
very well.He also wants me to do Tai-Chi twice a day for 20 minutes.I
bought a video but I just can't seem to get into doing it.I watched the
video a few times and find it to be very boring,as a matter of fact the
first time I watched it I fell asleep.I told the receptionist this and
she laughed,She told me that it is suppose to be for relaxation and
obviously it worked .Just not the right way.Well I have to go for now
but will be back on either later or tomorrow."FRIENDS THAT STICK
