Preparing For Surgery? 80% Of Women Were Unaware Of The Risk Of Adhesions!

According to the National Women's Health Resource Center (NWHRC), surgeons don't communicate very well at all. A whopping 80% of women who had undergone pelvic surgery were not informed of the risk of developing adhesions prior to their surgery. ADHESIONS Of those women, 70% said they would have taken special precautions to protect themselves from getting adhesions if they had been aware of possible adhesion-related complications. However, if 70% (7 out of 10) would have taken special precautions, one can only wonder if this is the very reason these women were not informed of the risk. As is well known among those who suffer from adhesions, the #1 precautionary measure would be to reconsider surgery! Unfortunately, however, the patient is not allowed to weigh the benefit of surgery against the risk of developing a debilitating illness. The silence of adhesions is deafening.
