Severe adhesions

Hi there please can you advise us. I'm 31 years old a recent laproscopy showed adhesions that have plastered my tubes on top of my ovaries therefore preventing egg capture. I have an 11yr old from previous relationship that resulted in emcs. My consultant has reccommended a laparotomy to remove these adhesions. Is there a good success rate with this surgery? Will I be able to concieve naturally? I have clear tubes and regular cycles.
