Adhesion and scar tissue after laporoscopic surgery what are side effects?

Dont worry: We always heal with scar formation. Adhesions are sheet like scars that span across the abdomen. In many cases you have them for yeas and never are bothered by them. The risk is one of these bands wrapping around your intestine and strangling it. In that case you will have intense abdominal pain an distention. It likely will never happen but check any abdominal pain greater than normal cramps ...Read more

How can you cure pain from surgical scar tissue (adhesions) without taking OTC painkillers?

You cannot: Most surgical adhesions do not cause pain. If you are having pain you should go see your surgeon. Pain killers do not cure anything, but rather create a new problem-drug addiction. ...Read more

Can you tell me how can your doctor diagnose you with having scar tissue or adhesions on or around your ovaries?

Can you tell me how can your doctor diagnose you with having scar tissue or adhesions on or around your ovaries?

Take a look: A doc can give a presumptive diagnosis, followed by recommendation for procedure to confirm diagnosis. Adhesion is very common and over used as a source of pain. Typically a surgery to look inside, see the adhesion, resect them or make an additional diagnosis is definitive. Okay to have a risk/benefit discussion with your doc about this. Take a friend. Be well. ...Read more

Possibly: If the scar tissue and adhesions affect your fallopian tubes, this could interfere with your chances of getting pregnant. Your gynecologist would be best to evaluate and advise you about this. ...Read more

Ovarian symptoms: First, this may not be your ovary you are feeling. Secondly, if it is there may be PID again, an ovarian cyst, scarring from prior inflammation producing changes in the ovary or fallopian tube, and so on and so on. The best thing is to see a gynecologist and be evaluated. Good luck. ...Read more

Tx after lap/ endo: If your not planning to conceive , the best approach after laparoscopy would be to treat with 6 month course of Lupron therapy. You may then consider Nexplanon , depoprovera or a Mirena iud. Ocp's is an option , but not a good one to controll endometriosis ...Read more

Not all women: Those are potential negative consequences as a result of a c/s, but most women do not experience any of these issues. Numbness at the site of the scar is probably more common than the other things listed, which are rare. If you are concerned about anything, call and see your OBGYN. ...Read more

Having laparoscopy due to painful intercourse doc thinks loads of scar tissue and adhesions from previous c-sections. Scared of having the surgery?

Normal: Its normal to be afraid of having an operation. While everything has risk, the chance of something bad happening is very, very low. The chance of having some pain relief is overall about 60-70% when considering all patients undergoing laparoscopy for pain. So the odds are in your favor that it will help, and there won't be complications. Hope this helps! ...Read more
