Well, more surgeries make more adhesions, but I get maybe a six month window of a little relief after having one, but.... After my 8th (in which I almost died) one the surgeon said that no on should ever go back in my belly/pelvis ever, unless it's life threatening (bowl obstruction, etc) as the adhesions are just too bad. It's a slippery slope unfortunately, and there is no easy answer to this ugly disease. I have a specialist in almost every specialty u can think of to try to deal with all the issues the adhesions cause. On surgery my gyn did it with the assistance of. General surgeon as I felt more comfortable since he had worked on me before- maybe this is something u can suggest if you have to go down that road. Good luck!
