Adhesions are scars or fibrous bands that can limit the normal movement of organs within the tummy. They can occur after any abdominal surgery or pelvic/abdominal infections and may cause pelvic pain. The diagnosis is usually that of exclusion after more serious and obvious causes have been ruled out first. The condition is usually managed conservatively. Surgery is usually avoided unless there is an emergency such as bowel obstruction or unrelenting long-term pain. A  laparoscopic examination of the tummy can be performed can then be performed to diagnose and treat at the same time. More information
