Answer:

Dear Leona,

Adhesions are bands of scar tissue that form in the internal site of the abdomen or pelvis after having undergone surgery.

As the body recovers from the surgery, the scar tissue connects the different organs causing them to stick to each other.

Abdominal adhesions are a common result after having had a pelvic or abdominal surgery.

In fact, they are formed in 93% of people who have had any pelvic surgery. On the other hand, they are particularly common after having a cesarean section.

Hypertension is an asymptomatic disease but serious hypertension gives symptoms like fatigue, dizziness, palpitations and tachycardia.

People with serious hypertension may have difficulty breathing.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) or acid reflux disease can cause symptoms or even damage the Esophagus. Pregnancy is a risk factor for acid reflux.

Acid reflux disease disturbances include heartburn, regurgitation of gastric contents, chest pain, stinging or burning sensation behind the breastbone, annoyance or obstruction to the passage of food, sore throat, phlegm constant, chronic cough, "asthma", shortness of breath, lack of air, apparently allergic reactions, frequent infections, pharyngitis, bronchitis or pneumonia, ear pain, and headaches.
