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. Furthermore, they can only be seen surgically: not on physical exam, not by x-rays or u/s. I advise you to see your ob/gyne or primary care doctor to help sort out the cause of your pain. ...Read more

Belly Pain (Definition)

Abdominal pain is pain that you feel anywhere between your chest and groin. This is often referred to as the stomach region or belly.

Pain in the abdomen can originate from any one of them, including: Organs related to digestion -- the end of the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas The aorta -- a large blood vessel that runs straight down the inside of the abdomen The appendix -- an organ in the lower right abdomen that no longer serves much function The kidneys -- two bean-shaped organs that lie deep within the abdominal cavity The spleen -- an organ involved in blood maintenance and infection control However, the pain may start from somewhere else -- like your chest or pelvic area. You may also have a generalized infection, such as the flu or strep throat, that affects many parts of your body. The intensity of the pain does not always reflect the seriousness of the condition causing the pain. Severe abdominal pain can be from mild conditions, such as gas or the cramping of viral gastroenteritis.
