Upcoming surgery

I have a question. Before your surgery to create the Jpouch, did any of your doctors stress how there was a chance it couldn't happen because of scar tissue?

My surgeon has been doing this surgery for 10-12 years. Other surgeons and my wound care people from the first surgery keep telling me he is "brilliant".
He has never had one of his reversed but he has reversed other surgeons work. And he did tell me he had one patient that none of his scar tissue tricks worked.

I'm just wondering how much of his warning is to prevent a law suit later. I do live around a high frivolous lawsuit area.

I am wanting to get a 2nd opinion also. But how does that work exactly when he says he won't know if I have too much scar tissue or not until he gets me on the table?

I'm sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong forum. Hopefully I'll be regular here after my next surgery. :-)
