Abdominal and Pelvic Adhesions: Post-surgical Adhesions

Adhesions in Abdomen and Stomach: Understanding and Treating Post-Surgical Abdominal Adhesions

What are Abdominal and Stomach Adhesions?

Adhesions are fibrous bands of scar tissue that can form between tissues and organs in the abdomen and stomach area – or anywhere the body has undergone a healing event. As such, abdominal and stomach adhesions are a complication that can arise after any surgical procedure in the abdominal or pelvic area. Adhesions first form as the body’s response to repair itself following surgery, trauma, infection, or conditions like endometriosis. While initially helpful in the healing process, adhesions can become problematic if they persist and create abnormal glue-like connections or bonds between organs, muscles, and nerves.

Symptoms of Abdominal and Stomach Adhesions

Patients with abdominal or stomach adhesions may experience a range of symptoms, including:

  • Chronic pelvic or abdominal pain
  • Infertility or menstrual problems in women
  • Digestive issues such as bloating, constipation, or nausea
  • Restricted movement or discomfort during physical activity

Diagnosing Abdominal-Pelvic Adhesions

Thick or powerful adhesions can persist in the body undetected for years. Because they are composed of collagen, a substance that occurs throughout the body, adhesions generally do not appear in modern imaging techniques such as X-rays, MRIs, or CT scans. Because doctors cannot view adhesions in imaging, they are either inferred by secondary imaging (e.g., blocked fallopian tubes or bowel obstruction) or viewed during a surgical procedure. Unfortunately, the surgery to diagnose adhesions can cause additional adhesions as the body recovers from that procedure.
