Hello Helen, I have adhesions that have attached to my small bowel and are causing partial small bowel blockages on a regular basis. (once every 2 weeks). I had surgery (laparotomy, not laparoscopy) to remove them in October, I was good for 6 weeks. Dec 6, the blockages started again and I have had 4 occurances since then. We are not sure if the adhesions are close to the liver or not as my surgeon did not want to go near the liver because of the re-routing of the bile into the small intestine. I am considering surgery again as I cannot tolerate being sick this often. Hope this is of help to your lady. Jane Brown
