Danger of Liver Adhesions

5265469?1263431266
Are liver adhesions dangerous? I have just had severe abonminal adhesions removed, adhesions which caused a bowel blockage. This followed severe scarring from major abdominal surgery, infection and abcesses many years ago. The doctor cleared the abominal/pelvic adhesions, but left the liver adhesions in place. Said I should talk with a "general surgeon." My liver is hanging (per the photos) by significant adhesions and fastened to the inside of the rib cage almost all the way around the torso. These are not "violin" strings..they look more like posts! The flaps of the liver are actually lifted and suspended..as is my gallbadder. I can not take a deep breath, and any pressure on my ribs on the right side is painful. Other than the discomfort, are these adhesions likely to be dangerous and damage my liver? Is waiting an option, or should I go and get an opinion?
