I just spent the Christmas holiday in the ER with my Mom, and yes... bowel obstruction is not something you want to hear, especially during a family holiday. Thankfully, she was able to pass this obstruction successfully. One thing that her surgeon suggested to possibly help prevent surgical intervention is to drink lots and lots of clear fluids when you feel bloated. I know this is probably not news to you, but I will say that I would be willing to try just about anything to avoid having to put my mother through another costly surgery. I wish you all the best. Hang in there! Karen

Hello, I have adhesions, and have been reading your website and have made contact with Dr. Redan. I am planning to meet him on the 8th of December for a consultation. I live in Minnesota, and will be in Florida for a National Chess Tournament, provided I do not end up hospitalized in St.Paul yet again for bowel obstructions. I have spent the better part of a month in the hospital recently, and I am still not feeling well, and am very uncomfortable, bloating, and throwing up almost daily.
anyone on this listserve who is currently reading the posts and has had a positive adhesion removal experience? Christine
