Our expert says:
When skin or organs are cut, the healing process involves forming of new tissue to heal the injury. When this tissue is healed, it forms a scar. Scar tissue is made from fibrous connective tissue which is paler and denser because it has a less of a blood supply than "normal" tissue and it is less movable, and have less sensation. With time it shrinks and can then cause obstruction of the bowel. Some people scar worse than others. It is unlikely that any more scar tissue will form after about 3 months after an operation. I think your chances of getting another blockage is very low.
