Can Intestinal Adhesions Cause Fever?
Can intestinal adhesions cause fever?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Intestinal adhesions are conditions that occur when a certain connective tissue is formed between the intestine and other organs in the abdominal cavity. Normally, all organs in the body have slippery surfaces and are not attached to one another so they can shift along with the body's movements.
This condition most often occurs following a history of surgery in the abdominal area before, but can also occur due to:
Broken appendix Infection of organs in the stomach Pelvic inflammation in women Cancer treatment There is contact between organs and foreign objects, such as needles, sewing thread, gauze and so forth
Regarding your question, the adhesions themselves do not cause any symptoms. Which if even cause symptoms, usually in the form of abdominal pain. However, things that trigger intestinal adhesions can cause symptoms. For example, adhesions due to rupture of the appendix, which then causes infection, fever can occur, even low blood pressure, increased pulse, abdominal tension, everything can happen, but not because of adhesions in the intestine, but the cause is appendicitis. The same thing happens to adhesions due to pelvic inflammation. There can be bleeding disorders outside the menstrual cycle, but it's not the adhesions that cause bleeding, but the inflammation of the pelvis is what causes bleeding and adhesions.
For more details and to avoid misunderstandings, you should still consult a doctor first, so that you can be examined and treated according to your condition. So, hopefully answering your question.
