Good Memory (((((VBjacks)))))

Helllo Everyone...GREAT thread!

Yes, my DH is a Chiropractor, 28 years of experience.

In layman's terms, he explains it to me as:

When trauma is placed on the musculature (sprain/strain) such as in an auto collision, the residual effect once the injury heals is scar tissue. It's thebodies attempt to protect the truamatized area. That tissue, because of the trauma it incurred, has lost it's normal elasticity and therefore it will not "move" as freely as the non-injured tissue did. This pre-disposes the area to further injury.

How does this relate to adhesion/scar tissue after GYN surgical and/or a GYN pathological reason for the development, he would not say...he has not been trained specifically in this area. But I suppose if we think of the areas inside of us that suffer in recurring endo, ovarian cysts that burst (like mine did) or other traumas, that if there is blood there would be chance for adhesion production.

I did treat chiropractically with some flexion/distraction in the lumbar spine pre-adhesolysis surgery, and although it felt great to be passively probably did nothing else but make me feel better for a little bit. I was too far gone by that time.

I'm curious now if this type of treatment would help to prevent further the formation adhesions now that they are all cleaned out of me????? I think I will call my GYN and ask her about this...

Let's keep this going.....I need more information, like most of you do too!!!

Going to bed now...spent the morning in the dentist chair having a crown put in and it's aching pretty good now...

Adhesion Alternative Relief Methods?

My P. Therapist had me do Traction for my back problems..when the table began moving apart the pain that ripped thru my pelvic & abdominal area was unreal. It stayed with me for days, I was bent over in pain. The problem w/older Adhesions like mine is that they become dense and actually create their own blood supply. The "De Noveu" Adhesions are ones that are newly formed...they are flimsy & the most easiest to break-up as well as to remove, that is one reason the * 2nd Look Lap for Adhesion Prevention, carries a better success rate
The best thing that can be done is not undergoing any type of elective surgery exp w/o a Surgeon who is very skilled & trained on preventing these. They are only 3 on the country reknowned in the surgical reval of them & even they have some patients they cant help I have searched & consulted many Specialists as well as tried several procedures that were non invasive at an attempt for some relief. Any of these release or massge methods are worth a shot!!
Big (((hugs))) my friends

Adhesion Alternative Relief Methods?

Wow! Thank you all for the great responses. As ((stephR)) said it is sad that so many of us are either dealing with or majorly concerned with adhesions. Maybe one of the big reasons for the Road

I was very hesitant to post that I was still searching for relief but I see I am not alone. I am not sure that my most recent surgery was successful because of recurring pain I am trying to be proactive early this time, and even though I could still be dealing with some post op stuff, I don't want to rule out the possibility of reformation. I would like to try some of these non-surgical methods to see if these possibly newly formed bands(of course no way to confirm they are actually there) can be broken up manipulatively. I have made an appt for the 19th to see this Chiro that is certified in ART see .I will keep everyone posted. Great news for me is that I found a local Chiro who also takes my insurance!

As in lots of medical issues, it might not be a fix for all but maybe it will be beneficial for some?? My understanding is that we should know if it is beneficial within the first 5 visits or so but I will confirm that after my consult on the 19th(crossing fingers here).

I am also revisiting my GP to discuss his opinions on the matter. A second look see lap has come to mind but that would take conveniencing the GYN to do this and I'm not sure I want to go surgery again Maybe a second opinion would be warranted here too?

As I think we all feel I just want fixed! Thanks again for all the great replies. Any add'l info that ladies can express is greatly appreciated!

Hugs to all,
