I had abdominal surgery 5 years ago because of intestinal ileus. Now test has shown that I have intestinal adhesion. I experience frequent abdominal pain throughout the day. I read that if I have more surgery to correct adhesion, this will cause even more adhesion in the future. So I dont want surgery to correct the problem.

I read that there are medications to treat intestinal adhesion. What are they ? How effective are they ? I desperately need to seek them out. Please help me out. Thank you..

  • Hi, I am sorry to hear you suffer I hate anyone who has to suffer I had a hysterectomy 17yrs ago and bascically been bedridden from abdominal pain intestinal pain is horrible. the surgery itself left scar tissue around the bowel. and all over they lacerated my bladder and sewed it back leaving a surgical needle in me for 9 month causing more scar tissue to form where ever it poked and cut me. luckily I guess I lived though it. anyway, I can relate to your intestal pain.I have waves of pain that make me cry. they cannot do anything but I am very interested in this medicine?that could help adhesions without surgery because of my damge and all the adhesions 15 surgeons said no way can we operate it will make it worse.I hate this at 39 this happened and now I am 54 constant suffering I go to a pain clinic to get meds but they only do so much. so you are not alone I wish you well and let me know if anyone answers your post.Take care , Lori:mad::p
