In brief: Yes

you are freeing up a 'KNOWN' obstruction and then, in a sense, reshuffling the deck.
the hope is that another one does not occur of ran other 50 years

In brief: Yes

Every abdominal surgery increase the risk of future obstructions due to scar tissue.
That is way we try conservative or non-operative treatment whenever is safe to do so.
