Has anyone applied & been accepted by any of these studies? I called about the one in Sandy, Utah but was told it was only on lower abdominal adhesions. I've contacted Dr. Lyons on this second study & I'm waiting for a phone consultation with him. I don't know if my insurance co. will pay for this surgery because it's out of state, but I'm going to call tomorrow & find out. Dr. Lyons said their are 500 people on the waiting list to have surgery in Germany with Spraygel. I'm scheduled to have "Diagnostic Laparoscopy with Lysis of Adhesions" on Mon. July 29 in Phoenix, AZ, but the surgeon does not use any barriers but I can't stay on disability unless I have this surgery! I'm hoping by some miracle my insurance will cover the clinical study surgery if I'm accepted. I'd like to hear from anyone about the clinical studies if they did or will participate in them? I've never been to the South, I was born & raised here in AZ, but I've never been to Germany, either! If I have to have surgery I'd rather take my changes that I might get Spraygel instead of knowing I won't get anything.
