I don't have any answers to your questions on the adhesions or hernia causing gas or anything but I did want to let you know we are here for you. many of us know the feeling of hoping the end of the road is just around the next corner.

It is scarey wondering all the time...seems we always work our minds into all the scarey stuff that can happen...what if...what about...why me...and we forget to try and focus on the positive outcomes. I know I do. It's hard not to when you've been on this road as long as some of us have.

But try to remember...with the endo finally gone and the adhesions finally gone life can go on. no more pain pills every four stressing if you can make it thru the day..or the next few hours. I have come to the conclusion that we go thru what we go thru for a reason..wether it it is to build our own strength or to help someone build thiers. I know it is so very hard at times to not think of the negative what ifs...
Try to focus on the positive aspects of having surgery one more time...just think. THIS COULD BE IT!!!! The last surgery!! whooo more pain..riding in that new truck (I'm jealous ) without having to worry about bumps sending you thru the roof...intimacy with your DH again. ( who also sounds like a keeper Btw) and being able to do all those favorite things you like to do again. Then you can come back to the boards and tell your sucess story to the rest of us and give us hope to.

Please let us know..(or teach DH how to how you do on monday. we'll be praying this is the one Kimberly...This will be the surgery that gets you off this road and on to the healing one.

sending tons and tons of sweetie

I dunno...

But it sure sounds like it'd cause a heck of a lot of pain!

Good luck on your surgery and I hope you fly thru it with no problems at all!
