    Adhesions can definitely cause back pain. Since surgery for adhesions often causes more adhesion formation, each surgery can give rise to greater and more severe problems than one had prior to surgery. Unless an adequate barrier is used to prevent reformation of adhesions, and the surgical technique is precise, the patient will likely develop new adhesions and symptomatic problems related to adhesions. Nausea is an all too common symptom of those who suffer from adhesions. My daughter suffered 14 years and was misdiagnosed during those years. Today she is well after a trip to Germany to seek the help of an expert adhesions specialist. Best wishes to you. Karen Steward
