Reply to "Adhesion surgery for chronic obstructions"

I was diverted from my j-pouch to a perm ileo.  During that lapro surgery she spent 3 hours lysing adhesions.  6 months later when she removed my j-pouch, during an open operation, she spent another 5 hours working on my adhesions.  Before she did all of this work on them they caused me daily pain.  I  needed 4 10/325 hydrocodone daily and now I only need 1-2  7.5/325's daily.  Believe me there is a huge difference in how I feel.  I don't think mine have come back. I was diverted 3 years ago. There was also pain caused by my j-pouch but I could feel little knots in my abdomen that were adhesions.

They wouldn't operate on me before there was a medical need.  I would think having obstructions all the time qualifies you for the surgery, but I'm not a medical professional.
