Re: Adhesions back so soon?

I've had trouble with adhesions for years! I've had 4 surgeries this year alone. I've had a total of over 40 surgeries (endoemetriosis, ovarian cysts, gall bladder, etc)in my life. My adhesions grow back within days of having surgery to remove them. My surgeon is astonished how quickly they are growing back. This year the adhesions are attacking my liver. My liver swells up after surgery and it is taking forever for it to go back to normal. I've now been 2.5 weeks without the adhesion pain. I'm hoping this is it for a little while.
