THANKS KAREN FOR THE IN-PUT. What is unoppose and opposed estrogen. I was going to study menapause when I was getting close and suddenly I am in it because of surgical menapause so I don't know to much yet about hormones. This week-end I was in bad pain still and today. I have put just the patch of estrogen back on to see if i makes my pain worse. I had a thought that maybe my P.T. broke loose an adhesion !!! She was working deep on the left side. After this week-end my husband wants me to talk to Dr. Levy about surgery. She is soppose to be so good maybe I would not get any more adhesions. Can't wait for the gels. I do not want to go threw another summer doing nothing. Yes, I am talking about Barbara Levy. -----Jaynie
