Thank you Peggy for your support. I was referred to this forum by my best friend. She suggested I get on here to see what kinda responses an/or helpfrom you great people. I live in Kentucky and went to Nashville for the doctor that preformed the surgery. This doctor is a gyn When I had the infected port they(his nurse, I never spoke to him) suggested I see a local doctor instead of driving 100 miles to see hime for something that could be taken care of at home. Today has been very bad for me. Fever and nausea all day and night. I have been in bad pain all day. My husband took me to a clinic. They gave me a shot of phergan and told me call my pcp in the morning. X-rays and lab tests shown nothing. I know I am not crazy, but it is really hard. Just reading about who else has this GREAT mystery called ASHESIONS is real relief. Thank you very much!!!! Teresa
