HiI am 47 and have history of severe endometriosis and have had laparoscopic surgery to include hysterectomy and ovaries removed,and bowel and bladder resections. ( 3 operations all together all keyhole) I also have one family member who had ovarian cancer.I have just had an MRI to rule out new endometriosis or scar tissue affecting small bowel as I had abdominal symptoms. The only thing they mentioned apart from old scar tissue was a small amount of fluid but my consultant is not worried about it and said its from all the surgery I have had. Should I be worried? thanks
in this case there´s really no reason to be scared. After such a history of surgery treatment, an accumulation of some fluid in the concerned area is quite normal.
So please don´t worry ;-)
Best regards,
Dr. N. Scheufele

Thank you for your reply. My surgery was from 2009-2012, does that make any difference ?
No problem, even after this time an evidence like this is no reason to worry.

Thank you, ***** ***** worry a lot about and my consultant wrote in his letter to me that I had a small pocket of fluid which he thinks is a fluid collection around some adhesions.
Usually fluid like this will be absorbed easily over time, so I would suggest another checkup in about 3 months.
Again: you really don´t have to be anxious about this.

Ok thanks, ***** ***** like this come and go?
Yes, there is a good chance that this fluid will be absorbed easily.
