In brief: There is no way now

Currently, there is no known way to reduce abdominal adhesions after intra-abdominal operations.
There are a variety of films and fluids that can be used during surgery, but there effectiveness is not 100% in terms of how many patients benefit, and how much of a benefit is derived. Walking and moving around is generally a good thing after surgery, and may help as well. Hope this helps!
