Yes, adhesions can come back that fast. That's why one doctor (recently died of cancer) who was very aggressive in treating adhesions used to do what he called a second look lap about a week after a first one to try and prevent the adhesions from forming. He found that most adhesions began to reform in that first couple of weeks. I took part in a trial last summer of a new gel to hopefully prevent adhesions from forming after surgery and they preferred the second look surgery to be 6-12 weeks after the first, because they felt that they would be reformed in that time, if they did.

I think it's good, since many doctors seem to think that adhesions shouldn't be a problem. AT least he's willing to acknowledge the possibility.
