Alittle something on Adhesions

Treating Intestinal Adhesions

by-Ronen Arai

Dr. Arai is Senior Fellow in Gastroenterology at the University of Miami School of Medicine in Miami, Florida.

Patients who develop obstruction complain of a crampy, abdominal pain, often accompanied by nausea, vomiting and abdominal distention. An X-ray of the abdomen provides information to make the diagnosis.

Good info!

Thank you for the info! I suffer from adhesions, and my last lap ahowed the left ovary adhered to the bowel and pelvic sidewall. I was having intestinal trouble, and suspected it was the adhesions, but it relly helps to have any and all info! I pray each day I don't end up with a total obstruction....Love, Tickles
