You probably should be seeing a doctor that specializes in dealing with adhesions. There are several out there . Mine is Clark Gerhart who is in Pennsylvania, Very good Doc, I would recommend him to anyone. Also there are docs in Florida and Ohio that I'm aware of. Good luck. It sounds like your going though a lot of back to back surgeries..You need someone who is up on the barriers that are out there for adhesions. Marlene
