CM, Sorry to hear about what you're going through. I'm one of those unfortunate-fortunate people. I've had six belly surgeries, and now ALL IS WELL. No pain, no problems with bowel, etc. I spent years with enemas because the adhesions even affected the nerve stimulation to the bowel, but the surgeon I have is very patient, and he was VERY careful about how he handled my insides while doing the adhesiolyses. I'm not saying that you will definitely have the same outcome, but it depends upon how much pain you have and how much you're willing to accept. Pray about it..... I will too. Yours, Becky
