Adhesion: This could be adhesions. When surgeons go into any compartment, but particularly the belly..inflammation occurs. The sites of cutting, cauterization, resection etc then go through several healing phases which sometimes causes scar tissue to form. The scar tissue can be right at the sight of operation..and can attach to anything nearby. Talk to your surgeon.
