Adhesions can be confusing. I had one tying my small intestine to my front abdominal wall, like a sausage and I had no obstructive symptoms. My gyn who did the surgery (laparoscopic) was amazed I hadn't obstructed. In fact, he thought he was going to have to schedule me for an open surgery to release it but was able to do it through the scope. I had pain (the reason for this laparoscopy) in the RLQ, exactly where the adhesion was, which went away after the lap only to return 3 months later. They did another laparoscopy, thinking the adhesion had reformed. Guess what? It hadn't. Same pain, no adhesion the second time.
