You are lucky they will be able to repair the hernia at the same time. I am having bladder problems I think are caused by the adhesions. The Dr did talk to me about having it stretched & pulled up at the time of my surgery (tomorrow), but after we talked about it, we both decided it might cause more adhesions to mess with the bladder so we hope the surgery will help with the bladder problem, but if not, at a later time the urologist would be able to go in laprascopicly to repair my bladder, which will reduce the chance of more adhesions. robin
