I think each person is different, & each surgery can have different results. I have had some relief from most of my surgeries (I have had 14 or so). But the last lap only gave me 3 weeks completely pain free. Then again, even with only having 3 weeks COMPLETELY pain free, it has taken 9 months for me to get back to the dose of meds I was on before my last lap. I don't know what I would do if I didnt have a lap, just keep uping my pain meds? I am already on such high doses that I get admited post-op just to control my pain.
I would assume that the adhesions will come back. I think you have to enjoy every day that you can & face the pain as it comes. Working with a good pain med doc can help you get relief.
Good luck & I hope you have a pain free day.
