... obstruction which they kinda of said no because the scare tissie had wrapped its way around my liver and the rest of my lower bowels.i found a new dr. at Cleveland clinic. he did laporscopic surgery 3 days ago. of coarse we will see how long this lasts. its no fix permanatly the scare tissue will come back. I mean I was in e.r. every 3 to 6 months. I cant believe the people on this site.. I lost a total of almost 27 lbs in the last yr. over this and I am only 5 ft.4, I feel sore from surgery but I am praying this works. good luck to you all and I will keep you updated.
