Hi Chris,Sounds like you have quite a mess.The last surgery I had involved alot of what you mentioned.Until I heard more about how dangerous it is dealing with the colon I thought nothing of it.My gyn did an excellent job he told me how careful he was not to nick any of the organs that were involved.Then when I ran a low grade temp for about 27 days he got really worried.I still think the fever was due to the interceed, looking at the warnings and all for the interceed it takes 27 days for the interceed to dissolve into the body so I really think it had something to do with that.I can see why you would be so scared.but remember we are here for you and are here to support you with whatever you go through.You said at the beginning of your post that the Dr. feels doing an exploratory lapororotomy and lysis of adhesions. Does that mean he wants to do this? Let us know how you are doing ,When was your last surgery?"FRIENDS THAT STICK TOGETHER" PEGGY
