Dr. OZ Talks About Adhesions and Bowel Obstruction

adhesions and bowel obstructionAdhesions and bowel obstruction are a concern for anyone who has had abdominal surgery.  It can also be a concern for C-Section moms, especially if you’ve had several C-Sections.

Adhesions and Bowel Obstruction Demonstrated

Adhesions and scar tissue can be such a severe condition that it caught the attention of Dr. OZ.  He actually talks about this concern at length on one of his shows.

Dr. Oz demonstrates just how these adhesions and scar tissue form and how they can cause bowel obstruction. You’ll get a pretty good sense of what actually happens to your bowels.  You’ll also get a good sense of how adhesions in general cause the problems they do.  It isn’t pleasant 🙁

Bowel obstruction is just one of the problems caused by abdominal adhesions, they can cause other problems such as chronic abdominal or back pain, interfere with fertility and create digestion problems.  But bowel obstruction can be the most critical.

If you’ve had previous abdominal surgery for whatever reason, C-Section included,  and you suffer with abdominal pain accompanied by bloating, you could be suffering from adhesion blockage.

Watch the Dr. OZ video that was done as a live show.  It will give you a good idea of how adhesions and bowel obstruction can affect you.
