I have not heard anything about the wrap you refer to, however, I had a gel put in (not spraygel) back in 1997, and in 2003 had to have a special surgery to separate my organs that had fused together from this stuff turning to a glue-like substance. It has since been recalled from what I was told. I had 4 surgeries in between those and no one ever noticed it. I've had to have 4 since then now also, because they caused so many more adhesions cleaning everything up.

The last one I had in September of 2004, the surgeon nicked my intestine, causing it to tear. He repaired the tear only to have it rupture overnight...leading to yet another open procedure the next day with 2 bowel resections! So, the cycle starts again for me. I'm sorry you are going through this, but if I were you, I'd find another surgeon! Best of luck and prayers!
