For those who think the adhesion sufferer is just a complainer, a weak person, or someone who seeks attention, think again. This is an illness no sufferer would wish on his or her worst enemy. Because adhesions can lead to complete debilitation, continual pain and suffering, as well as loss of one's "normal" way of life, the sufferer often feels complete hopelessness. This hopelessness truly takes a firm grip when the sufferer must come to terms with the manner in which medicine will deal with the illness. They don't. Oh, some may operate, yes. But the likelihood of a successful outcome...not so good. Most sufferers are prescribed pain meds and sent on their way. Such was the case of this gentleman who lived a normal life until a fall from a ladder at 62 years of age. Though he survived the fall and the many complications that resulted, he was prescribed pain meds and left to deal with the excruciating pain brought on by internal adhesion formation.
Sadly, medicine then walked out on him. To add insult to injury, he was suddenly left to figure it out on his own, to deal with this excruciating pain without the help of any pain medication. How heartless has medicine become--how low has it stooped--when a person who is suffering from a documented injury/illness is lumped in the same category as a drug seeker? Prayers for the family of this poor man. Read the story at this link:
