I have also had many, many abdominal operations due to Ovarian cysts and cancer of the cervix. I have also been operated on for numerous bouts with adhesions and of course with each surgery running into the risk of developing more adhesions. About 2 years ago I decided to look for alternative treatment and after receiving 3 treatments of Accupuncture and being taught deep muscle massage to break up adhesions I now feel 100% better. I do the massage once or twice a week to maintain. Believe me I too was skeptical at first but it has been a god-send.
