I am in your exact situation - the last two surgeries I had (2001 and 2004) they used the two approved barriers - still no good - I have always had pain free episodes of 1 - 3years after past surgeries this last one was only 6 months before I ended up with a partial obstruction - I knew right away all wasn't well as I still had the pain after surgery - thought it was (or should I say hoping it was just healing) but I am now in constant pain and bloated - wit the pain by my bladder now too. No surgeon that I have talked to yet will even touch me! I still think that even 6 months or more of a pain free life is worth the risk of another surgery....but I cannot find anyone that is willing (I have had 6 adhesion surgeries in the last 15 years). All of my tests are negative as well and the docs are now trying to tell me to take an anti-depressant!!! I am convinced my only hope is to go to Germany but I cannot afford such a thing - it will have to be down the road - I am also trying to find out if there will be any US clinical trials coming up that would use the spray gel....I have no answers for you - I have been overwhelmed by the support and resources I have already gotten since finding this site - I also believe that knowledge will be the power to get us through this - I wish I knew what I could do as a sufferer and consumer to bring more awareness of this issue to the medical arena in the US...take care and I wish you the best.
