Adhesions with a fluid sac involved

I've had several surgeries in my 53 years (C-section, exploratory abdominal with re-sectioning of the bowel, tubal ligation, complete hysterectomy, various laparoscopic procedures, adhesion repair). For the past 5 years or so, I've experienced intermittent severe abdominal pain, but in the recent month, the pain has been severe, accompanied with a "washed out" feeling. I had a pelvic ultra-sound procedure this past week, and it was discovered that I have an adhesion at the posterior end of my vagina with a more than 3-inch diameter sac of fluid incapsulated. I have read most of the literature, but I haven't found any cases where fluid sacs are involved. My surgeon is going to order more tests next week to see if there are more adhesions in the abdominal cavity. He is essentially leaving it up to me as to whether or not to do more surgeries. What is worrisome is the sac of fluid, but he doesn't seem particularly concerned. I was wondering if anyone had any advice or similar situation.
