Hope for our Adhesions?!?

Ladies - I found this article that was in the New York Daily News on June 28th. I was so excited when I read this part, I just had to share it with you! The author of the article is an MD who also suffers from adhesions and has had a hyster. If I can manage it with my insurance, I hope to be able to visit their new facility!!!...

Indeed, the medical system seems to be in a certain amount of denial about the problem of adhesions. Despite their frequency, few surgeons ever bring them up as a risk factor in pre-surgery discussions with patients. Afterward, once the pain begins, many patients *encounter scorn and disbelief from the medical *system.

Wiseman is one of the *sympathetic ones. President of Dallas-based Synechion, Inc., a consulting company that handles the science and business of adhesion prevention, he also runs a resource Web site, www.adhesions.org. He's heard the lament from patients over and over again, he says. "'No one believes me…everyone says it's in my head… everyone thinks I'm making it up," he says, reciting a long list of patient complaints when they bring up their post-surgery suffering.

Sometimes, he says, all the patient needs is someone to speak to her nicely and say "'Listen, you do have adhesions, you're not making this up, it's not in your head.'"

That's the "good" news. Here's the bad news Wiseman has delivered again and again: "There's not much we can do about it, but let's plan your life."

A more comprehensive approach is what Wiseman and Dr. Jay Redan, a surgeon who is an expert on adhesion *diagnosis and treatment, believe that *patients need.

"No one's really looking at the whole picture," says Wiseman. In the fall, the two *hope to launch what they say is the world's first comprehensive integrated clinic for patients with adhesions, chronic pelvic pain and related problems. The *center, housed at Florida Hospital Celebration (Fla.) Health in Celebration, will feature a multidisciplinary team of *surgeons, *gynecologists, nutritionists and urologists, among others. This has come out of the realization that patients such as de los Reyes need more than just pain management or repeated operations."

How's that for a little hope?

Hope for our Adhesions?!?

I've heard lots of good things about Dr. Wiseman. I've heard his name mentioned whenever adhesions are brought up since I became a hystersister 6 years ago. I do hope that one day they will be able to find the cause and a cure for adhesions. At least there is someone out there speaking about the problem and being an advocate for those who are dealing with them.
