] What are Adhesions?
"Adhesion formation is a natural consequence of surgery, resuling when tissue repairs itself following incision, cauterization, suturing or other means of trauma. Even the most careful and skilled surgeon will inevitably effect tissues inside the abdomen during a surgical procedure. At the places where a surgeon has had to cut, handle, or otherwise manage parts inside the body, tissues which normally should remain separate will sometimes become "stuck" together by scar tissue, defined as adhesions. This process begins immediately and continues for up to 7 days following surgery."
