Does exercise or good diet keep adhesions from forming after surgery?

In brief: No

Adhesions are basically scar tissue which forms in response to irritation or inflammation of the intestine.
They can be minimized by having laparoscopic surgery rather than open abdominal surgery. Diet and exercise will have no effect on this.

In brief: No

Adhesion formation has more to do with the type of surgery performed and the body's immune response to inflammation; one cannot control adhesion formation by diet or postoperative activity.
