I am glad that your doctor is supportive of you, that is very important. But it is also important that you get relief from your pain, not just because it hurts, but also because the pain is signaling inflammation which is creating new adhesions.
Please find time to go through previous postings to the forum, particularly those from Helen Dynda, they contain important information.
Please see http://www.widomaker.com
You need help with your pain for your husbands sake (he needs your support) and for yourself.
Also, there are leads to other doctors who may be able to help you.
Good Luck Kay in WI
