Kelly, 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.

Good Luck,Tami
