My surgeon spent 5 hours getting rid of my adhesions during the removal surgery. I had been taking 4 10/325 hydrocodone pain pills daily. After the surgery I've been able to decrease the medication to one to two 7.5/325 strength pills these days. It's been over 3 years and knock on wood the adhesions have not come back.
I'd had more than the 2 j-pouch surgeries. I'd also had a hysterectomy 20 years before then as well as a a large incision hernia surgery 6 months after my take down.
If you are having any current problems hopefully your surgeon will take care of them while performing the surgery.
