Gyn surgery needed after j-pouch

Hi all!

I'm wondering what anyone who has had abdominal or pelvic surgery after a j-pouch has done in terms of incision... I am having my tubes removed next week (one is likely blocked and I don't need them anymore), and my surgeon seemed pretty torn as to whether she should try to do it laparoscopically or not. She thinks there is a high likelihood that if she tried to get in there with the cameras, I would have too much scar tissue for her to proceed, and she would end up having to cut me open with a c-section type incision as well. She doesn't want me to have to recover from both types of incisions if I don't have to, so she's recommending we not even try the laparoscopy. I had my colectomy and j-pouch surgeries done 16-17 years ago. Has anyone had a successful laparoscopy post-j-pouch? Grateful for any thoughts!
