This is a new thread as a continuation to another thread about problematic, chronic bowel obstructions. I am at a point where I get obstructions every 1-2 weeks that land me in the hospital for 2-4 days. Before this, I have had increasingly chronic pain that I now understand was from adhesions. I've tried every diet change imaginable, including living on fluids for weeks at a time, but the moment I start eating even a low residue diet, the obstructions come back and I end up back in hospital. I've seen a surgeon and have a second opinion this week about how to move forward. My question is:
Has anyone had adhesion surgery, and what were your outcomes/reasons for having it? Was it laparoscopic or open?
(and I know surgery can lead to more adhesions, but I can't really live like this)
Thanks -19 years with this pouch so I guess things are finally catching up with it
