adhesion in children

Hello, my 8 year old daughter (not started her period) had a laparocopic appendectomy (determined-chronic appendicitis) on August 28, 2009 and walked bent (with pain) over until they did a CT scan 3 weeks later and discovered what they thought was an abcess (E. coli). She then was scheduled for surgery to drain the fluid pocket. Once they started laparscopically surgery, when they got in they realized she was full of adhesions. They to switch to a laparotomy. All of her pelvic orgrans were frozen with the adhesion. They said they have never seen anything like it in a peds patient. The surgeon used seprafilm during this surgery to try and prevent more adhesions. We are now a little over two weeks out and she hasn't really improved. She has had another CT Scan and it does not show any fluid pockets, but it does reveal more inflammation than before. She still can't walk without holding on to us and cannot sit up or stand up straight. Has anyone had experience with peds adhesions? Or does anyone have any recommendations of doctors in Missouri for adhesions? Thank you, any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
