"...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."
Toni, that may be very true in Cincinnati; but THERE ARE SURGEONS WHO ARE VERY EXPERIENCED AT PERFORMING DIFFICULT LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERIES!!
Bev sent me 3 videos of surgeries, which Dr. Harry Reich performed. Bev's surgery took 5 hours; another lady's surgery took 10 hours!! It was a VERY DIFFICULT surgery - and there were NO COMPLICATIONS!!! This is how Dr. Reich has earned his reputation as being the best laparoscopic surgeon in the world!!!
