I have never undergone this procedure....who is the doctor? Is he at Froedtert? I would be very leary about having this procedure done. To me it appears that it will just insure the reformation of adhesions....probably more than you already have. If it were me.....I would steer clear of this. Dr. Berger at Froedtert is aware of adhesions and knows the problems that they can cause....perhaps you can check with him? You can tell him I referred you to him if you would like.

Good Luck!
