Adhesions, General and After Surgery (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Treatment varies depending on the location, extent of adhesion formation, and problems the adhesion is causing. Adhesions frequently improve without surgery. Unless a surgical emergency becomes evident, a doctor may treat symptoms rather than perform surgery. Pain treatment, antibiotics, and other symptomatic treatments are sometimes sufficient to allow the symptoms of the adhesion is causing to resolve on their own.
