i recently found out that i developed adhesions as a result of my c section 5 years ago. basically in my case my colon is attached to my abdominal wall. i hear it is a pretty common thing. do you have adhesions? if so, have you noticed any long term effects? my doctor said he could seperate them during another c section...but i dont plan on having more kids, tho i still could.

I've never heard of that. Did you have symptoms or something that brought you to the dr where he discovered this? I had a c-section too so you peaked my curiosity =)

I have HORRIBLE adhesions from my c-sections which has impacted sex greatly.

I wish I could help, I am still working on trying to heal.

well yes. for the past 2 years ive had a heavyness in my lower left abdomen/pelvic region. i am always bloated and the area under my bellybotton on the left is assymetrical with the right side. i now have almost constant discomfort in this area. the doctor told me to stay regular. basically dont allow myself to become constipated or it could get worse...it can cause bowell obstruction and things like that.

Adhesions after a c-section is not uncommon at all, it is probably the most common risk of having a c-section, but they often go undected because many women do not experience pain from them. They normally are discovered when a woman has a repeat cesarean and they can see if there is damage or adhesions to other organs from the previous c-section.
