Endometriosis can weave together your organs.
Endometriosis may cause internal scarring, called adhesions. These adhesions may form webs within the body, intertwining and connecting, sometimes causing organs to be “stuck” to one another. Most often, the bowel and uterus are fused to each other, as are the bladder and the uterus. Adhesions may also obstruct Fallopian tubes or the bowel, leading to some potential life-threatening issues. Many women who undergo excision surgery to remove their Endometriosis also have their adhesions separated, cut, and removed. Unfortunately, though, the simply act of surgery or removing adhesions may lead to more adhesions forming during the healing process.
