adhesions and pregnancy
Adhesions And Pregnancy Is It Compatible?
Age and any medical problem?: 20, Asthma, migraine disorder, arthritis, and a previous Ladd's Procedure
After my appendix ruptured when I was 11, resulting in a brief stint in the ICU and 6 more weeks in hospital to take care of infection, it was discovered that I was suffering from a complete intestinal malrotation. I received a Ladd's Procedure later that same year, which resulted in significant scarring and adhesions. My GYN has suggested that the reason I have severe dysmenorrhea is that I have such adhesions. My question is, is it plausible for me to carry an infant to term? Safely?
Yes. You can carry a baby to term once pregnant, despite the presence of adhesions. Once pregnancy takes place, there is no risk to the baby in the uterus from adhesions.
I hope this helps.
