Adhesions

Inner scarring

From any fall, and from any surgical procedure – regardless of how small.

Adhesions are strands of collagen that form in the body after a surgery, trauma, infection or inflammation. Unfortunately, they are rarely discussed and many patients have never heard the term ‘adhesions.’ Because they are part of the body’s natural healing process, there is no way to prevent adhesions from forming and the surgeries designed to remove them cause more to form.

Adhesions can look like spider webs covering the organs or like filmy, white strands of nylon rope constricting structures inside the body. These powerful strands of collagen wrap around structures at the healing site and can restrict blood flow or reduce the function of internal organs. They can bind tissues and organs, resulting in mild to excruciating pain.

Like glue sticking tissues (in this case the liver organ to surrounding structures). Almost all of us have inner scarring – adhesions – that needs undoing – and at a pace that healing CAN happen.

Multiple layers of stuckness – and the physical end results (the pain. suffering and named conditions most are coping with – are as simple as restoring normal flows .. .

It is very possible to change this – and simply.
I also teach you how to gently and safely continue this process at home.

C-sections are one of the most common surgeries in the U.S. For many women a C-section is not a choice — it is now considered by the medical profession the only safe way to deliver the baby in many cases where in the past midwifery care guaranteed we birthed well minus surgery.

Regardless of the story – here you are .. .

Most c-section are routine and go as planned. We are not told of our uterus being taken out of place to be stitched up. The ligaments are so stretched that this is tolerated – but then what???

        
Many women are unaware of the post-surgical complications that can occur months or even years after a C-section. When the body heals from the procedure, it forms bands of internal scar tissue (adhesions). These adhesions can cause a host of problems if left untreated, including chronic pain, female infertility and life-threatening bowel obstructions. Often, they are misdiagnosed because adhesions do not appear on diagnostic tests such as x-rays.

Many of us know about the scar that is left after c-section, but you may be surprised to learn that the way your scar looks can be an indication of your internal healing.

 

Maybe you feel . .

The following are common symptoms of adhesions after a C-section.

If these describe you, you may have adhesions.

  • Non-diagnosable abdominal pain (sometimes years after your c-section)
  • Trouble standing up straight
  • Swollen/bloated abdomen
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Painful bowel movements
  • Secondary infertility
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Increased menstrual pain (since c-section)
  • Pain/tenderness at the location of your scar

Not just C sections – this may be also what has happened. My fingers are showing the depth of the hard tissue that has been there since an abdominal operation on the bowel when this older man was 1 year old.

As he is active, and always has been – the inner mess gives him no hassles  but the flows of all within will be impacted by this extras tissue.

Using also my decades of working with scars – I have been softening this to allow the ‘real’ reasons he is seeing him – extreme arthritic changes in his joints – to ease. Blood has to flow. .

 

C scar?

Long ago?

The older it is
Actually just gets worse . .
We can change this.

Even the neatest scar – even the ‘best healed’ one – will still be blocking flows.
We do not realise – the uterus is taken out to be stitched back up!!

Why ‘Gentling’?

 

“Lighter/taller/longer. more space down there”.
Best do this with the transformative needing work that is at the entire package . .
