Re: Is This Adhesion Pain?

It is very possible your pain is caused by adhesions. If your pain intesifies and localizes when having deep abdominal inspiration or when only stretching, and is of tearing character there is a possibility you have adhesions involving your diaphragm, liver, stomach and/or other abdominal organs. There is also some possiblity you are having some type of diaphragmatic hernia. Hernia usually is diagnosed using X-ray or endoscopic tests. Diagnosis for adhesions can be confirmed only when performing laparoscopy. I'm not a doctor, so I can't make diagnosis for you, but I have just noticed that your symptoms are very like to the symptoms I have been having for more than 11 years long.
