Surgery for adhesions

A close friend has been suffering from abdominal adhesions for some time now. She is in nearly chronic pain and avoiding roughage helps a little. There is a little intestinal blockage at times. One doctor, a surgeon, wants to go ahead and operate and thinks he can help her condition. He says that there is a wway of doing the operation that will reduce the risk of further adhesions. Another doctor vehemently opposes the operation and thinks it will likely lead to more pain and suffering. She is uncertain what to do. Does anyone have any success stories of abdominal adhesions that have been helped by surgery? Or have an opinion on the matter? Any insight or information would be much appreciated. Thanks Tim Beneke
