Karin, That is a new one for me! Stress causes adhesions!!! I have had 15 abdominal surgeries. My pain is all the time, and I take pain meds. My last surgery to have the adhesions removed was 15 months ago. I would like to have another one, as I at least get 3 months of almost pain free, and that thing called a life, but my Dr. won't do anymore. I'm thinking about finding someone that will. I live in Oregon. If you have any questions you can email me at
