adhesions?

Hi Sisters!

I have a question I hope someone can answer. I have heard the term adhesions used, as in "You don't want to get adhesions!"

What are they and how do you get them? If you do get them is there treatment?

Thanx in advance for you help.

adhesions?

Adhesions are internal scar tissues that form in the wake of abdominal surgery, endometriosis, and certain other traumas, including cancer.

They get their name from the fact that they stick to everything and can cause things to stick together.

Scarring is natural after any injury (which surgery is) but docs do try to reduce the incidence of adhesions.

If there isn't much bleeding -- if the site is fairly "dry" -- they can use this stuff called Interceed. I picture it as a kind of slippery stuff, but I don't know if it is slippery! The glop it all overy your internal organs so that adhesions can't adhere as well. Ask your doctor about using it.

Here's a place for more info about adhesions:
