Since you're a nurse, would you recommend laparscopic adhesiolysis using the

new "spraygel" adhesion barrier? I've read that after one week, the German

doctor who uses "spraygel," rechecks laparscopically to make sure the adhesions haven't returned. If you know...Does Dr. Gerhart or any other doctors in the U.S., go back in to look to see if the adhesions reformed?

How long does it take for one to know that adhesions won't return? I thought scar tissue formed immediately after surgery. Does scar tissue continue to grow like vines?

If the barrier keeps them from forming, then adhesions shouldn't return, right? I'm seriously considering going through another surgery with one of the doctors who use the barrier. In the past, I was operated on by Drs. Gerhart, Redan and Reich but it was before the barrier was used.

Any information you can provide to us I'm sure would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much.

Linda, Jax, FL

Thanks for the information.
