Yes, its possible for adhesions to form within seven days, but the density will be different with beginning adhesions until finally old adhesions can be quite thick and strong. I don't know if "extensive" adhesions can form in so short a period of time, it depends on how the word is being defined. But It could happen. My abdomen was completely "cleaned out" one April and by August was so full of adhesions that the doctor cut into an organ by mistake because he couldn't see anything. Good luck, Love, Sally
