Hi Meg. I'm new to this site as well. I was (finally) diagnosed with
endo with adhesions nearly two years ago. My left ovary was adhered to
my colon which was adhered to my pelvic sidewall. My advice to you
would be to seek a surgeon who specializes in endometriosis. May I
suggest a very helpful newsgroup?...alt.support.endometriosis at
deja.com. Within that newsgroup you will find helpful
support/information such as "Endo Sisters Survival Kit" that lists many
endo specialists throughout the country. Where there's endo, there's
likely to be adhesions.
By the way, I have never read nor heard anywhere about adhesions "just
going away". Feel free to email me privately if you wish. I hope I've
helped in some way.
