Peggy, yes the doctor wants to do a exploratory lapororotomy,but I was hoping for a laparoscopy instead but I understand why they want to do it that way, but I am upset becuase it seems the last surgery was so hard to recover from because of how much was done and now this surgery would be worse. I should be getting a call today from the doctor to find out the next step and I will let everyone know...and thanks again for all the support, I would be lost without everyone.....
