surgical clips

As a result of a botched appendix surgery in November of 2004 my wife has been suffering with a great deal of pain. She went through an adhesion surgery this past March which helped some but much of the pain still remains.Last week she had a ct scan which included these findings:

"Right lower quadrant surgical clips are present. These may be related to the ovary. The right ovary is not identified. There is a tiny cystic structure on the left which may represent the ovary".

We were not aware that "surgical clips" had been left in this common practice? And if so, can the clips encourage additional adhesions problems?

Thank you.
