That is sort of what I have been told too. Although my gyn found a surgeon who said he would operate, laparotomy, too and he also said that the pain and adhesions would only get worse over the years. I think he told the gyn thatbecause they get denser, and it then makesthe pain worse when the dense adhesions pull on the bowel. The gyn said yesterday the bowels my sister has left, were stuck down to the pelvix floor like mine are, so I hope she does not end up in pain after recovering this surgery. You want to be pain free after going though all that.

Love to all, Toni
