yes, I have been going through this same situation since 1987. I had an emergency surgery in 1989 to remove a blockage. Surgeon informed me taht if they hadn't removed that blockage when they did I would have had only one more hour before I would have died. I have been off work for the last almost 5 months due to blockages, three times I was admitted to hospital. I'm afraid to do surgery to remove adhesions as that would mean major surgery without any guarantee of o further obstrutions. The occurrences have been much over the last four years.
