Patient Comments: Abdominal Adhesions - Infertility

Are abdominal adhesions the cause of your infertility? Please share your experience.

Comment from: eyes wide shut, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: May 21

My first surgery at age 19 was partial hysterectomy. The possible symptoms were similar to endometriosis. Twenty-five years later I had three abdominal surgeries three weeks in a row, resulting in colostomy and 7 months later take down. Twelve years later needed gall bladder surgery and the surgeon diagnosed severe abdominal adhesions. My pain is internal, like severe abdominal cramping within the intestine.

Adhesions ruined my fallopian tubes and have my uterus plastered to the back of my abdominal wall.
