    Near the ATL and in SoWal as often as possible
    Personally I'd get a referral for a surgeon at a major university teaching hospital, such as Emory, Duke, or UF/Shands.

    Guess that would be, helpful!

    OK, so this may be TMI (too much information), but, here goes! I'm needing laproscopic exploratory surgery, to diagnose and remove possible scar tissue/adhesions. Or, whatever else may be, the culprit! Sad that years of Dr.'s, complaints and lots of testing, still left me with knowing they were missing, the real problems! Oh well, at least I can see the light, in this very long tunnel! My gastro Dr. referred me to Dr. William Haney, in the Destin and Niceville area. He can't see me for several weeks and I can't wait! I've also heard of Dr. Moody, so I may contact him. This is not the highest and best use, of my time!:sosad: I suppose a General Surgeon, would be fine. Any suggestions?:dunno:

    3 of us have used Dr. Moody. He repaired a hernia on my son when he was under 1 and fixed his belly button perfectly. Moody also removed some cysts from Mr. M2k, and on me removed some scar tissue from a c-section. Always a good experience with him.

    That's an, idea!

    My mother wants me to use, the Cleveland Clinic! At this point, kinda hard to know where to go, or whom to trust!:dunno: Testing yesterday and today, now, I need the surgery consultation!:sosad: I appreciate your opinion, anyway!:wave: Did I say, "this isn't the highest and best use, of my time"?

    Dr Moody operated on me for diverticulosis in sigmoid and the guy saved my life. This is a wonderful person

    Just curious

    What were your symptoms to warrant surgery, for Diverticulosis? I found out that I have that on both sides of my abdomen, over a year ago! How did they determine that you needed, surgery? Getting worse with discomfort and abdominal distention! So sick of testing, misery and feeling of getting, nowhere!:sosad: I know, TMI!

    Reply for diverticulosis and sigmoid

    Sorry for the late reply, I woke up at 2am with what was thought was an unbelievable need to use the rest room and could not (if this happens do sit the commode and push it makes it worse)and then thought it was appendices and could not stand up straight. I would seek help now, the operation was very painful and 5 days with tube sucking your stomach etc and no food or liquid and a 2 month recovery period
