In brief: Scar tissue

Abdominal adhesions represent scar tissue attaching between different abdominal organs.
This can be triggered by any process of inflammation or surgery. Treatment is usually observation or surgery.

In brief: Scarring

The abdomen is very susceptible to scarring when touched.
Normally everything moves around freely but when there are adhesions the organs have scars that stick them to one another and restricts their mobility.
