I am new here - suspect adhesions

I came here from the hysterectomy site - I had an abdominal hysterectomy about 2 months ago - mainly because adhesions from prior c sections had left my cervis, uterus and bladder covered in dense adhesions, and it was causing me great pain.

At about 5 weeks post op, I started with a pulling and burning pain at the top of my rib cage, on both sides. My gp is now going through routine testing - IVP, ultrasounds, CT scan, = so far all have been negative.

I'm certainly fearing adhesions at this point - I have found that sitting for long periods, or mildly strenuous activity brings on the pain, even hurting if I take a deep breath.

One question I have is - where would/could the adhesions be attached to to be causing this type of pain up so high? On what organ(s)??

Thanks for your assistance.
