Abdominal Pain Relieved By Antacids (Overview)

Abdominal pain relieved by antacids is a symptom in which a person's tummy pains get better after he takes some antacids such as TUMS, Maalox, Mylanta, or Rolaids. This usually means that his stomach acid is making his pains worse, so neutralizing the acid with antacids decreases the pain.

How do you get rid of abdominal pain from adhesions?

How do you get rid of abdominal pain from  adhesions?

Need more info...: I am always apprehensive when i hear the words "adhesions" and "pain" in the same sentence. Adhesions are a very common by-product of abdominal and pelvic surery and usually cause no symptoms whatsoever.
