Obstruction, Pain: As a general surgeon, I am called frequently to care for people whose small intestine has become twisted on itself due to adhesions from prior abdominal surgery (sbo-small bowel obstruction).

Depends: It would need to be of a sufficiently large size to do so. Remember that ovaries produce cysts every month, and these (functional) cysts are normal, and don't cause pain.

I was told I have a pelvic abscess, but they don't know from where or why? They said wait 1 mos for any changes and come back. Isn't it too long time?
Suspicious: If you have a pelvic abscess, you should at least have been given antibiotics. Small abscesses can resolve with just antibiotics. Larger abscesses have to be drained either by surgery or by image guidance (ct or ultrasound). Waiting a month with antibiotics could be appropriate if the abscess is small. If you are not on antibiotics you should ask your dr about them. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is there a difference in pelvic abscess and a stricture of the bowel after ileostomy reversal surgery?
Yes: Following reversal the bowel is reconnected and dropped back inside. If the new connection leaks or bacteria gets in, an abscess can form causing pain /fever (treated with antibiotics, drainage or more surgery).
