Adhesions (Definition)

Adhesions are scar tissue which can form after any abdominal surgery. The severity depends on whether infection/inflammation was present at the time of surgery. Adhesions are like bands or spider webs that form around the abdominal organs/intestines. Sometimes adhesions are light and cause no problems, sometimes tremendous problems, like crazy glue in the abdomen. Can ...Read more

If I have adhesions. What kind of surgery is necessary for treatment?

If I have adhesions. What kind of surgery is necessary for treatment?

Why?: Adhesions are internal scar tissue that can form in the abdomen after prior surgery or pelvic infection. Adhesions form after most any surgery, and each subsequent operation may cause more adhesions or scar tissue to develop. Adhesions are usually removed if they are causing intestinal obstruction. Gynecologists may have other reasons. Surgery is not necessary just because adhesions may be present. ...Read more

My 15months old daugther has labial adhesion her ped recomended primarin and force separation i don't want to force cause its painful what should I do?

Labial adhesions ...: Can sometimes be gently massaged apart in the office, but sometimes we have to do it under anesthesia. Once the adhesions are lysed, we have the parents massage estrogen cream into the raw interlabial area a couple of times a day. That usually helps the skin and mucosa there toughen up so that the labia will not re-adhere. ...Read more

Can recur: Labial adhesions are felt to be caused by mild irritation of the labia, either from diaper rashes, infections, poor hygiene (3-4 year-old girls are notoriously poor at wiping), or just excessive rubbing. As the irritation heals, edges of the labia stick together and become fused. Estrogen cream is usual stherapy.Recurrence can occur, so vasoline can be used once separated to keep labia apart. ...Read more

Could a laceration to the vagina of a 13 year old cause labial adhesion?

Could a laceration to the vagina of a 13 year old cause labial adhesion?

Yes: A laceration could cause labial adhesions but this can also occur spontaneously in young girls and not be associated with trauma. It is usually treated with estrogen. Do not forcefully pull it apart as this is very painful and could cause additional scarring. Although this is generally an easy problem to care for she should see a doctor. ...Read more

Labial adhesions: For my patients with labial adhesions, I usually recommend using a q-tip with some k-y jelly on it to gently separate the adhesions. If done gently and just on the adhesions, there is no reason it should affect the urethra or hymen ...Read more

Stage iii-b crc removed surgically 2 weeks ago, 3 days ago surgery was performed to remove post op adhesion blocking the small intestines, suggested chemo is capeox. When should treatment begin?

Stage iii-b crc removed surgically 2 weeks ago, 3 days ago surgery was performed to remove post op adhesion blocking the small intestines, suggested chemo is capeox. When should treatment begin?

Adjuvant chemo: Adjuvant chemo for stage iii colorectal cancer would be combination of 5fu/oxaliplatin or capecitabine/oxaliplatin. Chemo can be started as soon as you are recovering well from your surgery. It can be started 4-6 weeks from surgery-providing that all surgical site is healed. Good luck. It is not a common thing to have a colon cancer at age of 30- thus a genetic counselling/testing is recommended. ...Read more

Suffered 36 long hours with a perforated ulcer. Now severely full of scar adhesions. Is there any therapy to break them down, like ultrasound therapy?

Suffered 36 long hours with a perforated ulcer. Now severely full of scar adhesions. Is there any therapy to break them down, like ultrasound therapy?

Glad you survived: Hopefully the delay in emergent life saving surgery for your perforated ulcer was well fetted. Now you have adhesions, a separate problem related to the ulcer and repair. I do not recommend surgical therapy for adhesions unless they are causing bowel obstruction. If you are not bowel obstructed, massage and ultrasound will not hurt you. ...Read more
