I am feeling for you and your suffering. You see it was not that long
ago that I was in horrible pain! I was on so many different medications,
from Darvocet, Percocet, Duragesic Patch, to Neurotin, to try to make
the pain “bearable.” Pain took over my life. I lost my job as a nurse
and was loosing my fight for a normal life.
June 26th of this year the Drs. R & R did my surgery, the 12th I think,
for adhesions. You see I had been through every “Local Specialist”
until my Gyn Dr. stated “you are beyond my expertise Pam.” Through this
website and his recommendation we found Dr. Reich and Redan, “The Best
at this.” My surgery has given me back so many things! I start each day
by thanking God for the skill and compassion of Drs. R & R.
I would also like to answer a question you had regarding “Why do we not
hear from the adhesion members after their surgeries?” I am speaking for
myself when I state that I feel the message board is especially there
for those who are suffering, seeking, and looking for support. I use a
lot of direct e-mail contact to let any member know about my experience
with Drs. R & R and how my life is soaring since. I still talk
regularly with other patients that went through the surgery the same
time I did, as we all became our support prior to the day of surgery.
Please realize that I am not trying to say that I am above others and do
not need the support of others. My name and e-mail is included in the
introduction letter from Helen Dynda and the Society. I realize that we
will always be ARD suffers and that his is a disease without a ‘cure’
for now. I keep in mind though that with support and sharing we will
get changes made so that insurance companies and other medical personnel
will realize that adhesions do cause many problems, pain being the
number one on the list.
Fell free to write me at any time with that I can do to help you in
anyway. Remember that you are never alone ‘Mee’ and many of us are
praying for you.
