Sorry to hear you are feeling bad, I know the feeling. how do they know
you fighting an obstruction? I ahve been in terrible pain for about 10
days now, it is the same pains, but with the burning and pulling pain,
as you I got up off the couch sat. night, and my husband even was sh
ked, three times my legs gave out while walking to the bedroom. This is
an awful thing we are going through and if they do surgery, we take a
big chance. Please let me know how you are feeling, okay.
is your surgeon telling you that he cannot help you, or do you keep
cancelling? I see my counselor tomorrow, I have not been telling the all
of the pain, I have been in, but I am going to open up tom.
Hope you are better soon!
