Vent away Barbara!! Your story is strikingly familiar to me. Diagnostic lap 3/27/99. TAH/BSO w/lysis of adhesions 4/28/99. Second look lap 11/2/99. I've been told by three specialists that I should never have another surgery (or any ivaisve procedure)again unless it's a matter of life or death. However, my adhesions have not caused bowel obstruction and for that I am greatful. They do cause a lot of my pain though and it's irritating when I can feel them growing and stretching. Nothing helped the pain until I found a doctor who was willing to prescribe Duragesic patches. It has given me some relief but has not allowed me to resume my normal activities.

Enjoy your vacation!! You (and your hubby) deserve it.
