I had important surgery to remove appendix, may have Intestinal adhesion problem, need second opinion before surgery?

Hi, I am 35. 2 years back had undergone a big surgery to remove my appendix. It was big because they couldn’t diagnose the cause of the pain and the cut my stomach. Its a big horizontal cut starting from little above the navel point till the beginning point of pubic region. My problem is since that time im having a bloating stomach. I showed it to a Gastro Doc. He said could be Intestinal adhesion and may need to operate if it is painful or if it is obstructing the bowel. I dont have any pain. What could it be and how do i get rid of it? Please help.

In my opinion adhesions can reform so I recommend Laparoscopic surgery not an open surgery to reduce chances of adhesion reformation, you can do diet modifications like easting low amounts of food in short intervals focus on food that is digested easier.
Good Luck

in /my opinion ,if you are not suffering pain or abnormal intestinal and bowel movements you do not need to go for surgery and at least you need to try osteopathy first..
see an osteopath and try treating the adhesions conservatively ,symptoms could be also of IBS which is common and misdiagnosed sometimes..

Did u start passing stool like before surgery ?

If not.. do US , barium all through..

Take spasmodigestin, eat healthy food of high fibers content

can this doctor confidently say that the present symptoms are only due to adhesions and not due to anything else?
Can he guarantee of 100 % results after removing adhesions by surgery?

For me,i think you should avoid going under knife yet again.
try yoga,changes in diet,exercises and medicines.
