THANKS Peggy!!So you stopped taking estrogen? I put my patch of estrogen back on to do an experiment. Haven't done anything in a week except nap alot. I am still in more pain then I was. I was cutting down on my MS Contin but now I had to ask for stronger drugs. I see the P.T. on WED. so I'll ask her if she thinks maybe she broke up an adhesion. That would be cool. I know it hurt like hell when she was going deep on my left side. I did have endo on my left side in that cul-de-sac last surgery. My husband wants me to talk to her about getting another (#4) surgery. She must be good bcause she is in Dr. Riech's group. Or should I not assume that? I just want to have a handle on it by summer. I don't want to be left home again. Last summer I took a small trip on a train and had to come home early because of pain. You all know what it is like to be left home. And try to convince everyone and your self you didn't want to go anyway ! Off the subject a bit there. Then You hear about the dangers of having another surgery, like cutting the bowel or bladder and that makes you think twice. I will get back on track after seeing the P.T. she is good for my head and spirit. Seeing my pain doctor Friday and want to ask for stronger drugs when DR. Levy wants me to cut down on the drugs ! I wake up every morning in with drawels. Achey legs, feet, and body. You used some abreviations that I did not understand. Could you spell them out please. Thanks for replying Jaynie
