I am concerned about adhesions. I looked at the links under the Road Less Travelled and found some good information. What I am wondering is how can you tell the difference between the pain of an adhesion and normal post-op pain? I had developed one week after surgery a sharp pain on my lower right side that wouldn't go away with the meds. I had an ultrasound and a cat scan, which showed there was some fluid in the area. I was told that it should clear itself up. Well, it got better, but today after walking a bit, the pain is back with a vengance - like a burning pain. How do I know if this is normal from doing too much or if something else is going on? I do see my dr on Monday, but I know I'll be thinking about it all weekend.

Thanks in advance!

What might be normal post op pain for one person could indicate a problem in another. Everybody is different. What you are describing doesnt sound like normal post op pain to me - but that's me. My body could react to the healing process different than yours. As my mother always says when I am worrying about something: "dont die twice". I know its hard not to worry sometimes but it really doesnt accomplish anything other than wear you down at a time when you need to be resting and healing. Maybe its an adhesion or did you have endometriosis? It might be some endo kicking up. Its good that you have a doctors appointment coming up so he/she can check the situation out. Good luck and let us know what the doctor says.

the symptoms i had from adhesions started almost immediately after surgery and included; heaviness, pulling, tugging, sharp intense pain when sneezing/coughing, on/off swelling, sometimes a dull ache....the only way adhesions can be diagnosed is with surgery...........the discomfort/pain i had with adhesions was easily distinguised from normal healing.

stay well
