Not sure the doctor was looking for when performing the exploratory surgery but all surgeries inside or outside the body, cause scar tissue to form. I have massive adhesions from total hysterectomy which was done laparoscopic in April 1993. The scar tissue attaches/entraps the nerves and causes the pain. I don't know if food allergies cause pain. Your doctor would've been

able to detect a bowel obstruction which can be quite serious. Dr. Redan gave me a VHS copy of my surgical procedure.
