I had a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and abdominal wall resection to help
me because of adhesions. My abdominal wall had so much damage from
infections related to adhesions that the tissue needed to be removed and
part of my abdominal wall resected to fix it. It worked...I'm doing
great...no infections, no pain (it's been about 7 months).
