Hi Donald, I,m sorry I really dont have any answers for you. I to have what they call frozen bowel now the adhesions have taken over and get told its a real mess in there ( big help) I am seeing another surgeon on tuesday to see if he can help. I know my last surgeon told me some people tend to *grow* them more than others so guess each of us are so different. He told me you can go into somoneone 20 times and they get little or none others you can go into once and they get mass adhesions. Hang in there hope all goes well for you and you wife. Suze
