I wish we had a nurse or doctor tell us if adhesions continue to grow and become tighter after being lysed. It would seem at some point they would lie dormant. Sorry, if anyone thought I wasn't sympathetic of others. There could be no more sympathic person than me as I live in constant pain most of the time and many days I feel like giving up. Although I wouldn't take my life, I do think that life is not worth living if I must live the rest of it in excrutiating pain. Drs. Redan, Gerhart and Reich have performed laparascopic adhesiolysis on me but no adhesion barrier was used. After both surgeries, the adhesions returned with a vengeance. Now that an adhesion barrier is being used, I'd like to find out the success rate of those who have the surgery done. Also, I wonder what is in the spraygel that is used. I certainly don't want something in my body like the silicone gel I had with the breast implants. God Bless all of you who are suffering like me.

I don't mean to interefere with this post but I think we need to be sympathetic to others. Adhesions grow tighter over time and can start to cause a lot of pain. Mine do this often.

You say your adhesions returned after 8-9 years. My question is "how" after
this long could they return. Once scar tissue is lysed, one would tend to believe adhesions wouldn't return after a certain period of time.
