What bloodess help is there for patient with chronic severe abdominal adhesions?

0 like 0 dislike

I have had several laproscopic surgeries to take down th adhesions, which are relentless.  The most recent surgery was unsuccessful as the severity of the adhesions was found to be massive and blockages left the surgeon in a position where in his judgement it was better to discontinue the surery rathernthan continue, due to the amount of oozing ad bleeding (because of the minimal amount of dissention of the laproscope) would create more  obstruction.  The adhesions are extremely painful  and  I am concerned about organ and bowel strangulation.  Any help you can provide would be really appreciated.

I will have to search my library of articles and videos but I seem to remember them pumping air ( or a gas ?) into abdominal cavity to make more room for surgury. They may no longer use this approach.. May have been at Englewood -don't remember. You could call Sherrie at Englewood or Mike at Georgetown U Hospital Bloodless programs to find out. Phone numbers are at top of home page on this site under directories/hospitals. Look up specific hospital for number.
