Dear Brenda, Hi dear, its Sally. Please email me at
It sounds serious and you need treatment. Can you afford Germany?
The oxycontin might be more helpful if instead of the higher doses you
take meds for breakthrough pain, but if you're half dead already the
med won't do much more good, They can really wear you down also. A lot
is your decision of course, and your determination. But you need to be
educated about your choices. You can also email Dr. Wiseman to get lists
of other doctors in your area. What general area do you live in? Sorry to
be nosey. I wish you all the best. Living with adhesions is Hell, I know.
Love, Sally Grigg
