I am sorry you are going through this. The first thing you should do is secure your operative reports....It seems to me that the doctors don't tell you about adhesions...but, your operative reports will tell you. I have had 5 abdominal surgeries---on every operative report it states that the "sigmoid colon is adherent to"....start there and then depending on where you are someone I'm sure on this forum can suggest somewhere to go... Here's to better health!! Dena Lomax
