Dear Rosie, I just read on the UK site, that after taking a study they found that 15 %(FIFTEEN PERCENT) of post op hysterectomy women had adhesions with lasting, ongoing pain. That gave me pause for thought. Maybe a massive study in this country conducted by unbiased, legitmate scientists would uncover an ugly truth. Love, Sally Grigg
