Wait Adhesions are WHAT?

Having had endometriosis for seven years now I’ve heard the term “adhesions” a lot. It’s a really basic part of endometriosis and I never give the word a ton of thought.

Then there’s that awkward moment when you happen to glance over the medical definition.

Don’t google if you don’t have to, kids! And NEVER look at google images, you don’t need that negativity in your life.

I’m just going to be over here pretending my organs aren’t slowly becoming a mass of scar tissue.

About rachelmeeks

My name is Rachel Meeks. I have endometriosis, an incurable pain condition, IBS, a digestive illness, and PCOS, which causes irregular periods and infertility. After keeping my illnesses a secret, I started to get upset about how my fellow sick people were being mistreated because of ignorance. I knew that I'd need to stand up, make some noise, wear my heart on my sleeve, and admit that I am not well to make a difference.

    Adhesions are a bitch that I’d love to beat the crap out of. My last surgery my surgeon sprayed some kind of “magic blue stuff” inside me that is supposed to help keep the adhesions down. I haven’t had any pain for quite a while.
