Adhesions and Ileostomy?

In 1984 I had a total colectomy with a J-Pouch, but by 1999, I had so many problems with pouchitis, strictures and fissures, that I finally decided to have an ileostomy. When I had the surgery, it took two extra hours because of all the adhesions that had grown there. Now, seven years later, I had my gall bladder out and ever since have had a great deal of abdominal pain. I don't know if its possible to already have adhesions that cause pain, but my GI guy is sending me to a surgeon to check it out. Is it possible to have adhesions already? Thanks!
