The only adhesion barrier use during all my surgeries was Interceed, my gyn said it helps alot of his patients, but I happen to be the one he just cannot help, and it bothers him. He said that he had better luck with Interceed, and felt it would work better for me, but now if I decide to have another surgery, it would most likely be laparotomy, all the drs here in Cincinnati, they could not get through the adhesions in the pelvic area, and there would also be high risk for bowel injury. But the barrier they would use this time would be seprafilm.

I hope things work out for uou barbara, and I will be praying for you too.
