Your body is an efficient system that has a fall back for almost every situation. The normal healing process that is part of this efficient system is what causes adhesions.
If you’re facing surgery, you’ve probably wondered about what your scar will look like. But have you stopped to think about those other scars, the ones on the inside?
You should! These inner scars (tough tissue bands) that form between your abdominal tissues and organs can develop after surgery.
For today, let’s talk about Pelvic Adhesions.
What are Pelvic Adhesions?
Pelvic adhesions are bands of scar tissue that can cause pelvic organs, such as the ovaries or fallopian tubes, to be stuck together.
They make your normally slippery internal tissues and organs stick together, also twist and pull your small or large intestines, causing obstructions and pain.
Most often, adhesions are the result of previous surgery, but some can occur following pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).
Many times, they accompany more severe stages of endometriosis. They can also cause blockages depending on their location.
It’s impossible to predict how much scar tissue you’ll have, it varies from person to person. So, if you can’t prevent a pelvic adhesion, how can you minimize this problem?
THE FOUR BEST WAYS TO OVERCOME AND TREAT PELVIC ADHESIONS
1. Choose a Minimally Invasive Surgery
The first method for minimizing pelvic adhesions is to have a minimally invasive robotic or laparoscopic procedure. These days, most procedures have minimally invasive options.
Patients should ask about these alternatives and to request a referral if they want one. There is clear evidence that there is less scar tissue that results from a laparoscopic surgery.
Although, pelvic adhesions also have a higher chance of forming if unhealthy tissue is already present in the pelvic region before surgery.
Minimally invasive surgery cuts risks that can spark an adhesion such as, blood or blood clots not being washed away after a procedure, or your organs drying out somewhat during the operation.
2. Try a Liquid Diet for a Day
This simply means taking more water. Most pelvic adhesions don’t cause symptoms, but if they do, cramp gas pains are usually the first one to appear.
Other warning signs include bloating, nausea, vomiting, and constipation pointing out to a bowel obstruction.
Doctors diagnose obstructions either with CT scans or with X-rays of the abdominal cavity or intestines. If the blockages are severe enough, they could lead to further surgery and additional scar tissue growth.
3. Seek Prompt Treatment
Adhesions can also be caused by inflammatory diseases such as diverticulitis, Crohn’s disease, and peritonitis.
Early diagnosis and treatment of these conditions can help mitigate the formation of abdominal adhesions.
If you’ve had a pelvic operation, pay attention to your body so you can recognize any problems early.
Although, scar tissues are not easily detectable until maybe it leads to infertility issues. However, by following these suggestions and paying attention to your body, you can have some control over these common adhesions and minimize greater adhesion risk.
Most importantly, you need to know that if you have scar tissue, you could develop problems at any point even years after surgery.
4. Choose Non-Surgical Treatment Methods for Pelvic Adhesions
There are several ways to treat pelvic adhesions. While discussing with your healthcare provider, it’s good to discuss how this adhesion makes you feel including any pain you may experience as well as your goals for future fertility.
Treating adhesions with surgery do have adverse effects in some cases and that can’t be known ahead. So, it is good to ask questions and search for other less invasive options.
Adhesions can recur following surgery, so it may be necessary to wait for up to 12 months before trying to conceive.
Some of the gynaecological surgeries that can lead to the formation of pelvic adhesions are:
- Caesarean sections (CS)
- Ovarian cyst removal
- Uterine myoma (fibroid) removal
- Tubal ligation reversal surgery
- Surgical treatment of endometriosis
- Evacuation (D&C)

This can be a vicious cycle to undergo a surgery to remove scar tissues (adhesions) which may in turn lead to new adhesions.
Non-surgical treatment methods such as using herbs and natural remedies for adhesions have proven to be successful for complete eradication of adhesions over the years.
If not for anything, you have the assurance that there won’t be any adverse effect by making use of it, unlike a surgical procedure.
