adhesions???

I am worried that because I had extensive surgery due to stage IV endometriosis and fibroids that I might be more prone to adhesions since my organs seemed glued together. I have had a TAH/BSO and endo removed, would I still be more likely to develop adhesions again? Or is everything out of me that would contribute to this? Just another thing to worry about...............

Actually with any surgery you have you will be more prone to adhesions. That is what my doc told me. I wish you the best in your recovery and remember to take it easy

adhesions???

Hi,


Barbara is right. Adhesions are with all surgeries. We all have adhesions, it's just that some of us aren't effected by them. We know we have a raw vaginal cuff that can stick to something and we had boo-koo stitches. Let's hope we never feel it.

adhesions???



Unfortunately our bodies form adhesions after surgery. Adhesions form as a defense mechanism to the trauma and tissue/organ handling that takes place during surgery. The formation process begins before we leave the operating room.

The only way to positively diagnosis adhesions is by having lapraoscopic surgery.


Here are a few sites and information that better describe adhesions; why they develop, treatment options & possible prevention:
