Unless the doctors use something like spraygel to keep scar tissue from reforming, they'll probably return with a vengeance.  I've had two laparascopic surgeries (no barrier was used) and scar tissue just reformed.  My entire abdomen is stuck together with adhesions that are attached to nerve endings...I am absolutely miserable with pain!  I need a doctor who has a high success rate before I'll go through "major surgery" again.

I have had more adhesion surgeries than I can count and all but the last three have been open operations.  I now see a surgeon who cleans them out with the scope only.  I can't say that I think he gets them all using the scope and I'm going back in 2 weeks because my gastro said my stomach problems are from the adhesions.  I think he's hasn't been cleaning me out, but rather, weeding out on parts at a time.  I'm not quite sold on laparoscopy.  Never have gotten long term results.  Last one was in May and I'm sure I'll be having another soon.  Now I just have to make sure he tries to get them all this time.

I'm having problems here trying to find the right words here. I wonder how many others get easily confused because of all the drugs we've been on. OK sorry I wandered off a tad. Has anyone had lysis of adhesions by laporoscopy after they've had a laparotomy? I hope you all understand what I mean here. I've been given the impression from surgeons in MN that once they've cut you wide open for the adhesions that they will not be able to do it by laparoscopy. Wendy
