michelle i have been having problems with adhesions since i was 26 i had too have a historectomy 4 hrs after my son was born then at 40 i had breast cancer 6 mts of chemo after that i had growths 6 more surgerys no cancer but my dr told me he pulled a hole in my bladder from trying to get the adhesions off of it he told me it was like plaque on teeth he had operated on me 3 times said no more for him but on oct 21 2009 i had 2 main arteries blocked then 4 weeks later had fluid on lungs 2 days later around my heart they put me on 1800 mg of asprin a day for 2 weeks they said i would be put on steroids if the fluid was not gone in 2 weeks oh yea had my left lung drained really hurt so i started on asprin 3 weeks later the fluid was gone then the adhesions had covered my left lung it is over half cemented off i have a hard time breathing i do understand what you are going through and the answer to the question does adhesions spread yes they are like weeds but more like cement you can alsoi have them without having an operation and within 5 minutes after any surgery your adhesions start to grow i am living proof i am writing on a friends computer i am getting mine next week but write her back and i will get back in touch with you sincerely yours anna brown
