It seems all the Dr.'s want to refer me back to Gyn because he's the one who did the 2 surgeries that might have caused the new problems. Whether or not I have any female organs anymore (I don't) they keep wanting to send me bacj to Gyn--who has washed his hands of me and shoos me away every time I am forced back to see him. This is very frustrating! I disliked the gyn all along and look forward to the day when he's no longer a part of my life and recovery. Actually I am hoping to go around the gyn when I get my new doc, want to be sent to the general surgeons (that you mentioned in email) for a consultation since they do adhesiolysis :-) Gina
