My understanding is you can have adhesions in an abdomen without having a prior abdominal surgery. Of course, surgery is the most common reason, but there are others. Examples include: endometriosis that bleeds (it is uterine tissue that responds to monthly hormones regardless of it NOT being in the uterus like it should be), blunt trauma to the abdomen (car accident for example) where there might be blood leakage from damaged small blood vessels before they seal themselves off), infections in the abdomen (one example is a sexually transmitted disease that can travel into the abdomenal cavity). There is lots of information on this board, hope you find all you need. Judy
