Sarah- I recently had a laparoscopy after having severe abdominal pain and was told that my uterus was attached to my abdominal wall as well. I too had a c-section in 2004 and thought that all went well. My surgeon believes that I am just one of the unlucky people who produce massive scar tissue. I am planning on having a open procedure in the May/June timeframe to correct it. The surgeon will just reopen my c-section incision. She as unable to take any of the scar tissue down during the laparoscopy. I asked her if it was ok for me to get pregnant and have a scheduled c-section to correct the problem at that time and she advised against it. I don't know if any of this well help, but it was interesting to see someone with a similar situation.
