Thank you for the query.

As you are after at least two abdominal surgeries, and there were some foreign body left in your abdomen, there is a 100% that you have a lot of adhesions in your abdomen. Gauze left inside abdominal cavity causes intra-abdominal inflammation and tissues irritation, what leads to many adhesions and intestines narrowness. So you probably are suffering from intestines obstruction as a result of this surgeries. There is no other way to get rid of it than surgery. You should have abdominal CT with contrast (so called enteroclisis) and probably you should have another surgery to get rid of this adhesions.
Hope this will help.
