So, cesarean section is an operation, thanks to which the baby is born. We chose this explanation for good reason, after all, we will talk about spikes after cesarean section, and spikes are one of the most complicated and very unpleasant complications of any surgical intervention in the integrity of the soft tissues of the human body. Because the cesarean section is also an operation, it means that spikes are a very real threat to the future mother.
What are spikes after caesarean section?
In fact, spikes are a kind of protective reaction of the body. After surgery, any organ begins to regenerate on its own. The wound that has arisen heals by the formation of a scar (because the skin is tightened). However, sometimes these scars occur not only on a certain injured organ, but also between nearby organs at the site of operation (with caesarean section - abdominal cavity). After the operative delivery, the intestinal loops or other pelvic organs may "stick together". These are the scars between the internal organs and are called spikes.
Why are spikes dangerous after caesarean section?
After Caesarean section, spikes arise with a "protective mission". It is these dense scars (from connective tissue) that prevent the spread of inflammatory (or purulent) processes in the pelvic area, as well as in the abdominal cavity. At the same time, adhesions significantly interfere with the normal operation of the internal organs. The mobility of the "paired" intestinal loops is disrupted - as a result, there is an intestinal obstruction.
After caesarean section, spikes can affect not only the intestines, but also the uterus, and its tubes, as well as the ovaries. If this happens, then the woman can not avoid secondary infertility. Spikes can prevent the egg from entering the fallopian tube, or the sperm can not reach the egg, or even the embryo will not move to the place of attachment in the uterine cavity.
How can I suspect spikes after Caesarean section?
Fat tissues and organs can not get enough oxygen, nor, of course, normal nutrition, so such processes will make themselves felt. Very often, adhesion processes are "told" painful sensations in the pelvic region, as well as problems with the intestines and digestion (constipation, diarrhea, bloating). Because of stagnant phenomena, the overall immunity of a woman may decrease, so various infections will "cling" at every step, doctors in every way will treat obsessive sores, not realizing the true reason for their occurrence - spikes. That is why, after caesarean section, doctors must necessarily examine a woman in childbirth and exclude the presence of adhesions.
How to treat spikes after caesarean section?
Treatment of adhesions after cesarean section depends on their "severity". If the adhesive processes are neglected and pronounced, they can be treated with a new surgical procedure, creating a unique vicious circle (operation - adhesions - surgery (removal of adhesions) - new adhesions). As a rule, rough spikes are dissected either by laser therapy (laser) or by aquadisection (the water pressure dissects spikes), or by means of an electron knife (scientifically electrosurgery).
However, most often, to heal spikes is enough just to prevent their occurrence. Do you think this is difficult? Not at all, especially after cesarean section. Movement is the main prevention of adhesions. The sooner you get to your feet after the operation - the less chance that your organs will "grow together" with each other. Physiotherapy is another way to get rid of the adhesions "painlessly", however, a doctor must prescribe any procedures for treating or preventing adhesions after cesarean delivery.
