I just had my second back surgery in 1yr. and
a half on the same disk.After the first surgery I had
pain 6 months later.I had an MRI with IV contrast that
showed I had a small adhesion at the surgical
site.When I had the second back surgery last sat.I
asked about a adhesion barrier.I was told that there
was one for the back but the FDA pulled it after 6
months.There is currently no adhesion barrier for
people who have back surgery.
I did here of an adhesion barrier called Seprafilm
that was getting good results.
