This is my first time reaching out to such an outlet but my frustration with my reoccurring issues is completely distressing me. I am a 55 year old woman who has just experienced an eighth SMO due to adhesions. This has happened throughout a ten year period. My first surgery was at 17 and mid life many additional surgeries. Has anyone gambled on having adhesions removed (even though the risk for more is high) as an attempt to curtail these episodes? It has been discussed each time I have been hospitalized yet when I sultatioday arrives I am convinced to waito for the time. I find theNG tube traumatic and have only had it placed once. I would appreciate any advise or thoughts from your experiences.
