What is a Synchromed Infusion System? My pain specialist has suggested the
Morphine Pump implant. I had my abdomen secured with "Dura Mater" after it
herniated a thrid time. Dr. Bernd-Uwe Sevin a Mayo Clinic OBgyn/Oncologist
surgeon performed it.
I would not want to have surgery to remove adhesions if it is not a
permanent solution. From what I have learned about Dr. Reich's
"Adhesionlysis" procedure, adhesions do not return. His theory is "the
solution to the pollution is dilution." This makes sense to me.
I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thanks!
