What a thoughtful caring friend you are to be so concerned with her health.
Adhesions are so painful. Only she can make her decision. Is her pain
unbearable or is she able to tolerate it somewhat? Have her read our
stories on the quilt. Each of us has a different story but yet they all
tell the same tale. In my opinion, it was worth having my surgeries just to
get a brief period of relief. I know that some day I too will make the
pilgrimage to Penn. to see the great doctors there. For now, I just take my
pain meds and cope the best that I can. If she has found a doctor who is
willing to do surgery and thinks he can help her, if it was me, I would do
it in a New York minute. I don't want to influence her in any way, this is
just my opinion. Welcome to the IAS website! We all care very much about
each other and all understand the pain and anguish that adhesions bring. We
are here to help!
