Off To Germany to Meet The Adhesion Slayer!

After confirmation that Dr. Daniel Kruschinski of Klinik Am Zuckerberg had accepted me as his patient I immediately began the search for affordable plane tickets to Germany. My tickets were purchased six weeks prior to leaving for Germany. I was traveling alone so I asked the airlines in advance for wheelchair assistance, in which they gladly obliged.

I flew to London which was a six hour flight and then had to take another flight from London to Hannover Germany. Once I arrived to the airport in Hannover I was met by the Klinik Am Zuckerberg driver. He was holding a large white card with my name and destination on it. As I walked to the driver introductions were made, he grabbed my luggage and we were off to the awaiting car.

The driver spoke fluent English and excitedly giving me history about the towns we were driving through. The driver had no idea that he was taking my mind off the pain I was having.
We arrived at  Klinik Am Zuckerberg within a half an hour. I was amazed how beautiful this Klinik was, it was not the traditional building but a beautiful mansion with beautiful details inside and out on perfectly manicured property.

As I entered the Klinik I was introduced to the nurse on duty who was awaiting my arrival. He as well spoke fluent English. He took my bags and escorted me to my beautiful room. There the nurse explained the usual how to contact the nurse, how to make outside phone calls and showed me to the ensuite bathroom. Within ten minutes of being at the Klinik I received a call from Dr. Kruschinski. Dr. Krushinski explained that the nurse would be drawing blood and that he would be in to see me the next morning being that it was already late afternoon. He asked me if that was alright or he would come to see me that day. I was so tired and only wanted to take a hot shower have some dinner and go to sleep, I agreed to see him the next day.

I was in Germany and going to meet the Adhesion Slayer !

Adhesions Contact List

Yes, I had to get to Germany to see Dr. Daniel Kruschinski! I researched how Dr. Kruschinski has an 85% success rate with his gasless surgery to remove adhesions using his own designed specialized instruments & the Abdo-Lift along iwth the Sprayshield Gel adhesion barrier.

I went on Dr. Kruschinski's website where there is a patient contact list. I took full advantage of that list by calling and or emailing at least six people from the list. 

I spoke with previous patients who had surgery with Dr. kruschinski from 2003 to as current as October 2011. Each person I contacted was cordial & freely spoke abot their surgical experience with Dr. Kruschinski & how professional, kind & skillful not only Dr. Kruschinski was but his staff as well.

I also received confirmation through a book written by Karen Steward called "Doctors: Bound By Secrecy? Victims: Bound By Pain!" This book details the many years her daughter Melissa suffered with severe abdominal pain. After many years of being misdiagnosed, Melissa was referred to Dr. Daniel Kruschinski of Germany by an American Physician for treatment of her adhesions.

I could not put this book down because I felt this book was telling my story as well. It was as if the Lord was showing me through this book & speaking with former patients that I must get to Germany!

Because this book not only represented me but I am sure it represents most people who have adhesions I gave the book to my medical physician to read. That is just my way of bringing awareness to adhesions to all those that will listen.

I emailed Dr. Kruschinski & spoke with him over the phone, I explained how I had been diagnosed with a frozen abdomen & that no surgeon from the USA would touch me. Dr. Kruschinski requested some medical documents to review in order to decide if I would be a good candidate for the surgery.

A few days later I received confirmation that I was accepted as a patient. Dr. Kruschinski was not scared of a frozen abdomen & had great success with excising adhesions with extreme adhesions.

I was on my way to Germany!
