Hi Michelle,

We are glad you are here. Every one is such a big help and encouragement. Make sure you add your name to the adhesions quilt. My story is on there under Jenny Low. I have had 4 laparotomies and 3 laparoscopies. The last laparoscopy was done Feb 16. Unfortunately I am still in alot of pain. I had a CT last Friday. My surgoen, his colleague, and my gyn are supposed to get together and view the scans and decided what needs to be done. I have to call the surgeon's office on Monday to find out and/or make an appointment to go in. They were supposed to get together this past week. I called on Wednesday just to find out they haven't been able to coordinate their schedules. So that's when they told me if I haven't heard from them by Monday to call and schedule an appointment. I am trying to be patient. And now there is nothing I can do until Monday. At least I have pain meds I can take.

If you ever need to talk, I am here. You can also email me privately at any time. I cried for a week when I first found this site. I couldn't believe there were people like me, who could understand me, and were even saying some of the same things I had said to my husband. It's wonderful knowing you are not alone. And with these wonderful people on your side, you are not!

Love, Jenny
