Anyone here get abdominal adhesion after GB removed?

Posted , 7 users are following.

Removed GB on August 2016. Around my belly keep on off pain. sometimes I can feel my stomach tighten and a pulling sensation. I thought is Hernia but doctor told me MRI show no defect except very small till cant detect. Today i go back review, doctor confirm no hernia but maybe is adhesion.. ask me to hv a laparoscopic surgery to check.. I wanna ask is there anyone hv symptoms like me? Thanks

    Doctor says I have adhesions, cause pain quite regularly. Didn't suggest surgery, said I had to live with it!

      Thanks for reply.

      Why doctor didnt suggest surgery? 

      My situation now pain when after finish pee, pain when doing plank excersice not more than 1 min, straining pain, streching pain, sometimes pain when walking (very annoying when going shopping...), lying down i can feel a hard lump at my belly (not sure is hernia..)

      So my doctor suggest me to hv a surgery to check inside whether I hv adhesion or hernia... if both have, he will repair it...

    Hello, my husband had a car accident 37 years ago and it perforated small bowel. He has adhesions which he lives with and yes it does feel like the same sort of pain you describe. He is due to have op on gallbladder on Friday 26 May and surgeon says that if adhesions cause a problem when he does the keyhole procedure,he will then do it by the old method.

    I had my gallbladder removed two years ago.  Shortly afterwards I was found to have a hiatus hernia. Now I have a large kidney stone!!!!!!!

    I have not got a clue if any of this is realted to each other or if it is just coincidence.

    Let me know how you get on at the doctors.

    Take care and keep in touch

      Hi Sarah.

      I also found out i hv mild sliding hiatus hernia. After 3-4 months, i start to have pain around belly untill now. First doctor said maybe is umbilical hernia, after 2nd admit, found no defect around there, maybe the defect is smaller than 2cm. Now he said maybe is adhesion because I dont hv any bulge like what they describe a mini ball at umbilical when standing or straining. I juz can feel a hard lump when lying down or streching.

      I now waiting my insurance agent to check whether my medical card can use or not because the medical card bought on Dec... just pass 5 months... 

      Any news i will update at here. Take care too and keep in touch

    I had my gallbladder removed in February and experiencing just what you describe. Pain and stretching/stabbing sensation around my belly button incision. Doctor has discussed it could be a weakened muscle and a possibly hernia starting to push through or scar lesions causing the pain.

      I see I see. I now post op 9 months. I did asked my doctor is there any patient of him happen to be like me. He told me have and some are more serious than me. I hope not hernia not adhesions juz a normal pain... but the pain make me feel uncomfortable... So i better go check it before become painful.

    I did, but I had a liver resection a month after an open cholecystectomy and the surgeon corrected them then. I didn't even know I had adhesions until he told me after the liver resection. I just assumed pain and tenderness were part of recovery process. I believe adhesions are very common following any surgery.

      I see. I hv 3 incision. Only the belly incision pain and uncomfortable. Others 2 look fine. My doctor told me pancreatitis can cause adhesion too. Before I know i hv gb stone, i get pancreatitis and in hospital for 1 week. After 1 week discharge from hospital, i rush to emergency due to pain again... Then found out i hv gb stone and operation remove... Maybe this cause me adhesion?
