Abdominal adhesion form as a result of inflammation and the common causes include infection, trauma, benign/malignant growth, and surgery. Some adhesions are asymptomatic and found incidentally by your surgeon while attending to other problem. Some adhesions can be problematic and cause bowel obstruction and pain - a topic of heated debates.
