Surgical findings: This sounds like a complex surgical case. The best person to answer will be the surgeon who physically visualized what is going on inside. They are in the best position to explain what was found and if anything should be done. Typically omental and bowel adhesions are dissected and freed when found to help decrease the risk of pelvic pain.
