Its not just good luck to find one. Dr Redan At celebration Hosp is
there for just this. before going to the many surgeons that claim they
can help try one that can. It was worth the trip, tax deductable
medical expense. This website has all his info and CAPPS program info.
Depending on where you live there may be other option, but before
surgery check into options carefully. I know is sound like alot to
travel to a DR> but the future of some free time of adhesions is that
worth it. If it can be a longer timebetween, than most surgery and with
out the severity of the regrowth when it does. D
