Following 2 caesarian deliveries 30 years ago, a fall down the stairs and lifting heavy furniture I have suffered intermittent pain from adhesions for the last 5 years and it now rules my life. The doctors at my surgery don't seem to know anything about adhesions and they don't show up on ultrasound either, so I'm thinking I would have a consultation with a private surgeon and see whether he will take me on under the NHS. Adhesions haven't actually been diagnosed - I've been doing my own homework and am aware of the difficulty in being taken seriously by my own GP. Can anyone tell me the best way to go about this and the likely costs involved. Does anyone know how much adhesiolysis would cost privately? I feel desperate and depressed. . . .
