Do adhesions show up on an ultrasound?

Hello sisters....I had a TAH Jan 2000 ended losing my left ovary due to cyst and endo...when I woke up I had more pain on my right side...and 4 mths later still I went back to my doctor last week..had an the call Friday that I have a questionable mass on my right side....could that be adhesions? If there was a mass there in Jan..surely my doctor would have seen it during surgery. I'm really scared..I go back Monday morning. Thanks for reading.

Do adhesions show up on an ultrasound?

Hi Paula,
Your story sounds similiar to what I went through
First to answer your question about Adhesions, no they usually dont show up on any imaging test unless they are constricting something which would just show the constriction. Sometimes they will if they are very dense. I had a TAH 15 months ago and was continuing to have a lot of right sided pain. My Doc ordered and Transvaginal US and it revealed a large mass on my right ovary. I had a Lap a week later to find out what this unknown mass was. Turned out it was Adhesions that were adhering my ovary to the vaginal cuff It was also covered in multiple blood filled cysts and twice its normal size so it was removed. Having a second surgery so soon after is very scarey but it needs to be checked out. Here is a great site where you can learn more about Adhesions
Please keep us posted and know you have many prayers from your Sisters

Do adhesions show up on an ultrasound?

Hi there, from what I can gather from your post, you still have your right ovary right? So it could be an ovarian cyst or an adhesion on your ovary.........usually the only way to see adhesions unless they are very dense is with a laprascope, please let us know what the dr says on Monday and try not to be scared.....we're here for ya
