No Spray Gel is not being used in the US yet. Maybe one day it will be
FDA approved. But then, you will still have to find an experienced lap
surgeon. The 2 years prior to my surgery, I was in bed all the time. I
was on 3 strong pain meds and some other stuff too. I would have more
pain walking the 10 feet to the bathroom. I didn't shower much because
by the time I got up, got clean PJs, & got undressed, I had so much more
pain. I sat in a chair to shower because I just couldn't stand up any
longer. I couldn't even get up to eat. My husband would serve my meals
to me in bed. If he didn't come home at lunch, I usually didn't eat. If
I was hungry, I would make it to the kitchen & got myself a bowl of
cereal. Now I do most of the cooking.
More surgery with an inexperienced surgeon can make your adhesions
worse, just becareful choosing a surgeon.
I think that if you can afford to go to Germany, it is your best chance
in becoming adhesion free.
