Hi. I had my ovaries and appendix removed and tons of adhesions removed in December (the 2nd surgery for the adhesions). The pain came back in February. I have also had a small bowel resection in July (the 3rd surgery for me from adhesions) and have pain again that started in about September. I had the spray barrier. My doctor suggested I watch my diet and exercise because he does not want to go back in so soon. So, I understand because I too have had the pain come back within a couple of months after each surgery. Sincerely, Vicki >
