Post-bowel-surgery adhesions

Diagnosed with stage 3 advanced colon cancer 2 1/2 years ago, my husband underwent surgery to remove part of his bowel and small intestine, then received 6 months of chemo. A year ago he underwent surgery to remove the colostomy bag that had been fitted with the first op. His scans are now clear and the tumour-marker blood tests are negative, however he is in almost constant pain from what the doctors say must be adhesions. From what I can gather adhesions are internal scar tissue and there is little that can be done. He has gone from being a very healthy active man to not being able to walk far without severe pain in the area of the original tumour and now has difficulty even sleeping because of the pain. Do you have any suggestions please?
Many thanks!
