Sue ann,

The drs have used Interceed on me, but are talkig now about seprafilm, if I cannot wait for Intergel. The drs are wanting to wait if possible for intergel, seeing hopefully it works better. They keepsaying that seprafilm still, like Interceed there are no guarantees, and they are hoping like me, that one will be available soon, where the drs at least know it may work. When was intergel use, sue an, how long after surgery, and It sounds you are feeling better.

Are you in the us? I know it is being usded elsewhere. Looking forward to this.
