I'm trying to determine if some of my pain is from scar tissue/adhesions from lumbar surgery in 2004. My PM dr said it "could" be part of of the problem but offered no recommendations except to say that surgery to remove them would only create more and more extensive adhesions. I was told after my hip replacement surgery to gently massage the incision site after stitches came out to prevent adhesions from forming. Should I have done this after the lumbar surgery?
I'm sure I do have adhesions and I'm wondering now if I can minimize them in some way at this late date.
