Dear Michelle, Sounds bad, I've suffered from adhesions for 19 years, 4 surgeries and no female organs either. I don't know what meds you're taking, but I'm on heavy narcotics. I go to a gastroenterologist for the nausea and vomitting. Turns out I ended up with gastroparesis, a slowing of digestion due to the narcotics I'm on. I hope this helps and I wish you luck with your battle. from your sister in pain, Susan
