I am still recuperating here from my surgery with Drs. Redan and Reich on June 19th, 2000. This has not been an easy recuperation as I am still experiencing pain, and of course, pain triggers thoughts of, do I still have adhesions? I am learning now that with the extensive surgery I had that one will have pain and that pain is not the adhesions, but that I am still healing. As an adhesion sufferer that thought will always be in the back of my mind, are they back?
I have been given the best chance in the world with having found these wonderful surgeons to live a pain-free life. I feel blessed that I found my way to this site, was lead on the right path, that I may be one of the very lucky ones and may only have to have ONE adhesiolysis.
For those of you that are still fighting your way in this terrible battle, please feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions regarding my surgery.
