Renee I am new to this but from what I understand adhesions can form anywhere there has been trauma whether it is surgery or infection or whatever. And if you have them elsewhere then you are one who is prone to them so my answer is Yes, you might have adhesions in that area. Gather as much information as you can and take it to him. In the meantime check around for a different doctor. Preferably an Ortho who has experience dealing with adhesions? I have several search engines on my website for finding specialists in your area. Your problem is very real and if your current doctor doesn't want to deal with it FIRE him. Whatever you decide, don't let him go back in for a 'peek.' Laparoscopies cause just as much damage when you are adhesion prone as surgery.

Hope this helps and you get the treatment you need and deserve. Marla
