Hi there, I suffer from adhesion really bad. Last year I had surgery to remove my adhesions, by a trauma specialist. I though I was doing the right thing! My first surgery on Sept. 9,2003 went pretty smoothly! But with in 24 hour I started running a fever, and became very ill, my left side hurt so bad and my abdomin was extended. my surgeon sent me down for x-rays and a barium x-ray, which was not fun at all, I then was on my way to surgery again as the found a hole in my intestines, all in all I spent 17 days in the hospital and almost lost my life! I did get seprafilm then, but it is well over a year now, and I am back to square one again.

I can no longer eat I am back on ensure! Having another surgery, will by time and that is it! The more surgery the more adhesions that grow back! There is no cure for adhesions! There are only a handful of doctors that can help, none of which in the USA, and the few that are in the USA can not operate with just surgery alone the adhesion will come back.

I really believe that the more sugeries , those adhesions come back 3 times worse! You might want to try pain management, I am currently in pain management and it helps!
