I had liposuction of the abdomen. I have internal adhesions on one side which are pulling and causing me discomfort. My plastic surgeon just says to massage it and it will go away. Its been over a year. I heard cortisone shots or laser may help. I don;t even know what kind of doctor to talk to. ?

Diagnostic Laparoscopy

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Now a days there are multiple technologist existing to determine the cause of the pain for an year. You need to see the laparoscopic surgeon to determine the cause. MRI scan of the abdomen, Contrast MRI, Bowel motility studies etc are all aid to diagnosis.

If nothing determines a laparoscopy is done by the surgeon to look inside with naked eye and find the cause.
