Hello,I have bad adhesions from endometriosis and 4 abdominal surgeries,and I have had partial small bowel blockage.I had surgery in March but I'm having pain and symptoms again.Pretty much from what my dr told me,not much can  be done,the more surgery you have,more adhesions you will have and can worsen it,unless it becomes a medical surgical emergency as with a complete bowel blockage,otherwise dr's perfer to leave it alone,but it is really painful,I have issues everyday.For some people,it will improve and symptoms/discomfort will wax and wane with time.
       Mary 53 on here has offered great advice on here on dealing with them and there are some excercises ( I cant remember how she explained it) so hopefully she will see this post and be able to help you.Good luck,

I had a diagnosic laproscopy, while in there the dr. removed adhesions that were 15 years old without telling me this could cause worse pain. I am now completely disabled due to the pain. I cannot even cut my own toe nails. I have been told "too bad it's just pain, deal with it"
If you are able to function do not have surgery for the adhesions!

Would you be willing to share more info? Did your dr. tell you pain could come back or get worse before the surgery? Did you have any kind of bed rest, or, restrictions after?
