Cyn, I was wondering if your doctors have ever used one of the adhesion prevention barriers? (interceed, sephrafilm) If not, you might want to look into that. If they have, there are a couple of new things being tested right now. I had one used this summer -- intergel -- and it seems to have worked well so far -- according to the doctor it worked great -- but my problems were minor compared to yours. Intergel is actually already available for different uses and in some countries for adhesions. Hearings in the US will be this November but if you can wait, it could be approved for use in preventing adhesions either with laparotomy or laproscopy by the end of the year.
