They can also block the small or large intestines by twisting and pulling the tubes over each other, which can cause extreme discomfort. These surgeries can lead to many complications, like weakened abdominal and pelvic muscles, urinary infections, pain, and gastric issues.

Some people may feel spasms in their muscles while walking or sitting for long hours. Thus, abdominal adhesions can be quite painful and physically challenging, requiring your full attention and care. Keep in mind that pain and complications can vary from person to person.
