My trip to Germany went very well. I have nothing but good things to say
about the whole experience. As many of you know I had surgery with Dr. Reich
and Dr. Kruschinski. I had adhesions in all four quadrants of the abdomen,
small and large bowel involvement, loops and loops of bowel involved. I have
already experienced some relief , particularly in the pelvis. I am however
still recovering and it has not been a walk in the park. I saw my paindoc
today and he thinks much of my upper abdominal pain is intestinal spasms and
has started me on something that already seems to be helping.......and I am
working with my diet and hope to work out some ot the bowel difficulties.
At second look, I was adhesion free....this is very exciting. I hope to stay
that way. I feel priveledged to have been in the hands of such skilled and
experienced surgeons. The nurses and Dr. Kruschinski's staff were all very
kind, helpful and professional............as was Dr. Reich.
I will keep you updated as I progress in my recovery.
I was so sorry to hear about Karla and her difficult struggles, but
encouraged by everyones support of her.
I am not quite up on who all is on their way to Germany,,,,,,,I have some
catching up to do.....but I am wishing you all a successful trip.
If I missed thanking anyone of you for your well wishes........Thanks again,
I appreciated the support so much.
