|My mother aged 64, was diagnosed last Nov with omental adenocarcinoma. She was operated upon in March 2011, went into intestinal obstruction post operatively and was again operated in April 2011 to relieve obstruction. She has had a history of various laprotomies. Since her last surgery she has NO APPETITE, DISTENSION OF THE ABDOMEN, EXCESSIVE BURPING, CONSTIPATION, FEELING OF INCOMPLETE EVACUATION AND PAIN IN ABDOMEN. What do you think could be the cause of these symptoms? She has become very weak and unable to carry out her daily activities. Do you think there could be intestinal adhesions and what is the treatment of choice? would be really glad to get any answers/ help from you. Parule agrawal, kanpur, 9336013034|

|Dear Parul Agrawal
Chronic pelvic pain is a debilitating disease that affects more than 20 percent of patient who go for open surgery. Much of the pelvic pain is caused by scar tissue known as adhesions. Since her last surgery she has NO APPETITE, DISTENSION OF THE ABDOMEN, EXCESSIVE BURPING, CONSTIPATION, FEELING OF INCOMPLETE EVACUATION AND PAIN IN ABDOMEN. Adhesions are bands of scar tissue that connect normally separated pelvic structures. This connection represents a common problem in gynecologic health care which causes incapacitating pelvic pain, infertility, constipation, and dyspareunia. Patients are more likely to have adhesive disease after an injury. The injury can be caused by surgery, infection, radiation or trauma to the abdominal area.
Causes of Pelvic Adhesions
Previous pelvic or abdominal surgery
History of infection in the abdominal cavity
History of cancer or radiation therapy
Previous intra-abdominal trauma or bleeding
Surgical glove powder
If you want we can perform laparoscopic adhesion removal for your patient.
