Can scar tissue break loose and cause pain after surgery?

Postby octave » Fri Aug 05, 2011 9:33 pm

I had colon resection after battling cancer last year and going through chemo I was finally well enough to go through the resection. My surgeon suggest that scar tissue can break loose and cause discomfort. Is this dangerous?

I think there are situations where it might be dangerous. You really need to talk to your doctor about this.
