ADEPT - Approved by FDA?

I've followed this message board for many years. I've had six surgeries
resulting in varying degrees of success (or lack of it!). My last
surgery was 3 1/2 years ago, and while my condition isn't perfect, I am
managing my endometriosis with Lupron and the adhesions never returned
as bad as after all of my other surgeries. After my earlier surgeries,
I'd get 3-6 months before I was worse than before the surgery. This
last surgeon knew what he was doing and it made a difference for me.
However, I am starting to ponder surgery again to excise the
endometriosis. Of course I'll wait as long as I can because of the
adhesion complications that I have had in the past.
I have read that the FDA has approved ADEPT for use in the United
States. Has anyone had success with this product? I understand that it
has been used in Europe for 6 years. Supposedly the FDA approved it
this past August.
If anyone is aware of outcome information using this product, it would
be extremely helpful. I'm sure that I am not alone in my hope that,
over time, new treatments would become available so that we can start
beating this condition, not just managing it. It does seem weird,
however, that there hasn't been a lot of discussion on this forum about
this product. Most of the discussions has centered around that SprayGel
that hasn't been approved.
