Hi Teresa. Another question I have, is what tests are done to figure out where the adhesions are located? Any information would help. Thank you!

Hello @upartist
I'm sorry that I don't have an answer for that. I'm not sure how adhesions are located. Best check with a doctor to see if there is a way that can be done.

I had adhesions removed at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix & surgery only makes it worse. I have adhesion's that are plastered to my intestines & bladder. There is nothing they can do about it. The dr. I had was very good & he removed what he could but through the process there was a small tearin the small bowel so you have to be careful about removing them. My dr. said no more surgery. It would only cause me more problems & just to treat the pain. Only way adhesion's show is through a laporoscopy. They do not show on a MRI or CY Scan. Best of luck to you.
