Hi Deanna, When you say a total hysterectomy, I assume that you mean that you will be having your uterus, ovaries and both fallopian tubes removed. Are you having an abdominal hysterectomy? Or are you having a laproscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy? Sometimes, there is less chance of adhesion formation with the laproscopic method. Ask your doctor how he/she will do the surgery. Have you had a problem with adhesions before? Not everyone has a problem with painful adhesions after surgery. I wish you the best........Jeanne C
