Endometriosis and Adhesions

endo and adhesions

According to Endometriosis.org, adhesions are bands of fibrous scar tissue which form inside the body. They can be found anywhere in the body between almost all organs and tissue. For women with endometriosis, they may bind an ovary to the side of the pelvic wall, or they may extend between the bladder and the uterus etc.

Women with endometriosis describe the pain associated with adhesions as “stabbing, sharp, pulling, sickening, intense and nauseating” whereas adjectives most commonly used to describe active endometriosis pain itself are “burning, pinching, dull, heavy, and miserable”. Whilst adhesions are more often than not spoken of as a postoperative complication, this does not necessarily hold entirely true for women with endometriosis, even though they, of course, are a group of people who often have had numerous surgeries and thereby, by that factor alone, increase their risk of developing further adhesions.
