In brief: Obstruction, Pain

As a general surgeon, I am called frequently to care for people whose small intestine has become twisted on itself due to adhesions from prior abdominal surgery (sbo-small bowel obstruction).
Often, this will correct itself with in-patient mgmt, but it occasionally requires surgery. My gynecology colleagues care for many patients with pelvic pain presumed to be due to adhesions to the ovaries.

In brief: Mostly nothing

Adhesions after intraabdominal processes develop frequently .
Most patients are unaware they have them. Infrequently they cause intestinal obstruction and very very rarely do they cause pain.
