All I can say is; Stay away from surgeons who don't understand and have no experience with, adhesions. I don't mean to sound callous but you are only beginning to experience the horror of what this disorder can hand out! Many of us have had 20+ years being held hostage to the medical community, treated with disrespect and outright disgust. It is perhaps the best time to have developed this as now the surgical options with experienced surgeons is higher than it ever has been. You will hear about them here and also about how successful their work is. Please don't have surgery without a barrier of some sort to stop re- growth. Donna J
