If this is your first surgery how do they know where you have adhesions?
There is no test that really can say you have adhesions.I want to tell you
that if your surgeon does not use some type of barrier you may wind up with
worse asdhesions than before and worse pain. I have had many surgeries and
each time with no barrier and it only got worse. If it wouldn't be for the
specialist I found who was willing to use those and keep my surgery
laparoscopy I would have to stay in Pain Management. I talked to 3 different
surgeons about the adhesion problem and none of them knew anything about
adhesion barriers. Educate yourself well before you just let some happy doc
cut you and make your condition worse.Please do that much for yourself. From
the stories on the adhesion quilt youcan find many stories with no adhesion
barrier and even those with that didn't work. Fortunately some have worked
but it was with adhesion barriers,Laparoscopy(tiny holes )and warm air,powder
free gloves,the works. Check and see what Dr Reich has to say about how to
prevent further adhesions.
