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.

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.

Estrogen cream is usual stherapy.Recurrence can occur, so vasoline can be used once separated to keep labia apart. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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.

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
