Every time a doctor operates — whether it’s a big incision or a little one — scar tissue forms inside
the pelvis, Levy says. This scar tissue — known as adhesions — can cause pain.
And then there’s the issue of nerve damage, Martin says. Multiple surgeries seem to be
linked with pain from injured nerves. Many women undergo surgery over and over again.
If you peruse the endometriosis discussion groups and bulletin boards on the Internet, it is not
unusual to read accounts of women who’ve had multiple surgeries
— 12, 13, 14, even more — and still suffer from pelvic pain. These women believe that they need more surgery because their trusted
physician’s have told them that the endometriosis has grown back and another
operation is the only solution. So why would women keep coming back for a treatment that
seems so ineffective? Well, first and foremost, it’s because their pain is so unbearable, says,
Dr. Dan Martin, a reproductive surgeon and a clinical associate professor at the
University of Tennessee in Memphis.
Adhesion Related Disease is THE most infringing and disabling disease in the world today.
