I would like to add something should people doubt the recovery of these
people. I pretty much live at Bev's house...she keeps me going when
frustration peeks. I also personally know two other individuals from my
community who have had the surgery done by Dr. Reich as well. You
would be totally amazed at what these people do! All they do is
go....go.....go! I have never seen Bev or any of them experience even a
second of pain since they have had their procedures. I can only hope
and pray that when the day comes for my surgery (if it ever comes...at
this point I am starting to have doubts...but that has nothing to do
with R&R) my outcome is the same as their's. I would give anything to
live their lives.

Subject: Dr. Reich was Bev's surgeon when....
Beverly is a former RN, who had to let her license lapse - when she
became so terribly ill as a result of adhesions. Dr. Reich was Beverly
Doucette's surgeon when she underwent her adhesiolysis on April 22,1999.
She is still pain free!!!
Bev sent me a copy of the video from her 5 hour surgery...and I actually
saw Dr. Reich slowly and very carefully lyse the mass of adhesions,
which had enclosed and trapped her bowels. For the very first time I
could really begin to understand how painful bowel adhesions must be.
When the bowels are attached together - or attached to the abdominal
wall by adhesions - this prevents the normal flow of digested food
through the bowels causing problems such as constipation, nausea, and
In gratefulness to God and to Dr. Reich for having had her health
restored, Bev has become a very active Outreach Worker for the
International Adhesions Society!!! Many International Adhesions Society
members can attest to the fact that Bev has been there to help them.
In November, Bev will be accompanying several people to Germany for
their scheduled adhesiolysis procedures with Dr. Matthias Korell of
Duisburg, Germany. Bev will be assisting these women, as needed,
following their surgeries. KUDOS TO BEV!!!
