The scar tissue is outside the gut, attaching to to the abdominal wall or other sections of intestine. I’d be skeptical about enzymes and/or tea having any effect on adhesions, though things that calm the gut could, perhaps, reduce uncomfortable pulling as the intestine moves around.
Understand that both surgeons are trying to be honest that with lysis of adhesions there is no guarantee that I will be better. Because of the random obstructions andfrequent hospitalizations I feel that we can't travel anymore . I have been hospitalized while vacationing and that can be very scary if you are not near a larger hospital. I also don't like to be put in the position to decide which doctor might be right when one says operate and the other says you are better off to deal with the SBOs and to continue with conservative treatment . I think when you have 2 different opinions you need to get a 3rd one and see who that doctor agrees with. At least I plan to see a third surgeon. I was told that if I choose surgery it is better to operate when I am well and not in a crisisituation
