Need more info: If you were having abdominal pain prompting the ultrasound, it could be "sludge" obstructing the common bile duct. This may not be seen as a stone on the ultrasound but may cause the same type of blockage. You need an MRCP (MRI of the biliary tree) to evaluate the common bile duct. If this shows a blockage you will need ERCP (a procedure done by a gastroenterologist) to clear the stones or sludge ...Read more

Abdomen pain and heavyness very frequently. The recent scan report found that, subacute intestinal obstruction due to postoperative adhesions?

Be mindful: Surgical adhesions are not infrequent, and can lead to small bowel obstruction. Many cases resolve without surgical intervention, which is good! the more surgeries you undergo the more you develop new scar tissue. If you have severe abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and suddenly are no longer passing gas or bms, to er. If not, small but more frequent meals, high fiber, lots of fluids. ...Read more

Adhesions surgery due to painmy abdomen has distended horribly, discfort, mild pain, constipation, nausea, cramps, and adhesions post-surgery yrs ago.

I would consider: Treating constipation with miralax, (polyethylene glycol) two times per day if needed, or mag citrate. Unless you have bowel obstruction, few will be excited to take you to surgery. It may or may not be adhesions but i would guess you had pain with surgery for adhesions. Sometimes there is pain and adhesions but adhesions incidental finding. Consider getting seen, it may be time for colonoscopy, gyn exam good luck. ...Read more

The adhesions causing intermittent slight twisting in small bowel depending on response to diet can and do cause symptoms that you are now experiencing. ...Read more
