Former President Ronald Reagan has developed scar tissue, or adhesions, in his intestine, which his physicians believe resulted from his 1985 colon cancer surgery, a spokesman for Reagan said. The spokesman, Mark Weinberg, said Friday that tests at St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica, including a CAT scan and blood tests, had "revealed no evidence of cancer or any other disease" and that "neither surgery nor hospitalization is contemplated at this time."

Toronto Blue Jays slugger Edwin Encarnacion needs surgery on his left wrist and will sit out the remainder of the season. All-Star left-hander Brett Cecil is also being shut down by the Blue Jays for the final 13 games because of a sore elbow. Encarnacion sat out four games last week because of soreness in the wrist. He returned to play all three games of a weekend series against Baltimore, but had only one hit in 12 at-bats. Encarnacion ranks third in the majors with 36 home runs and his 104 runs batted in are the fourth-highest total.

Oakland Raiders cornerback D.J. Hayden has been released from a Bay Area hospital and is resting comfortably at home, according to a team spokesman. Hayden, the No. 12 pick in last month's draft, was admitted to the hospital late last week and underwent surgery to remove scar tissue in his abdomen. Last November, while at the University of Houston, he suffered a freak, life-threatening injury on the practice field. He collided with a teammate and sustained a ruptured inferior vena cava, a large vein that carries blood from the lower body back up to the heart.

Listen, Shweetheart. Go sneak a peek around the corner at the Cast-at-the-Circle--Waring and El Centro, downtown Hollyweird. Wanna know what's there? Scar Tissue. Not an it but a she. Remember her in "Intrigue at Ah-Pah"? That private eye in white suspenders who behaved suspiciously like Bogart (with a touch of Bacall) and went after Fish and (other) Game up in Humboldt County?

Former President Clinton will undergo surgery this week to remove fluid and scar tissue from his chest cavity, a rare complication resulting from Clinton's heart bypass surgery six months ago, his doctors said Tuesday. Clinton, 58, is scheduled to have surgery Thursday at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, and will spend three to 10 days recuperating there. Physicians treating him said he probably would have an uneventful recovery and resume a normal life.

SAN FRANCISCO - Chris Carpenter made his living with his right arm. It would go numb every now and then. He would pitch. That was what he did. His right hand would go numb too. He would feel a tingling sensation in his hand, or his arm or both. He would pitch. This went on for four years. He was one of the most effective pitchers in the major leagues. The numbness afflicted his face this past spring. He would not pitch. If surgery worked, doctors anticipated he could pitch again next season.

When he slid too early into second, got his knee stuck in the dirt a bit and heard a "pop" in his right groin on Friday, Torii Hunter thought he had damaged something in the area that was repaired by a sports hernia operation last November. "I was like, ‘What the heck just happened?' " said Hunter, who had doubled off the left-field wall in an exhibition game against Colorado. Hunter got the answer — and a huge dose of relief — when he was examined Saturday by Dr. Lewis Yocum , who told the Angels center fielder the "pop" was some scar tissue breaking up in the incision from his surgery.

THE Red Hot Chili Peppers make music that is all sinew, knuckles and gut groove, the kind of songs that, for two decades, have provided a soundtrack for keg parties everywhere. So there were plenty of puzzled looks and even some laughter from the audience when, at the wonderfully dank Irving Plaza, the band recently decided it was time for a slow-skate song.

As the owner of a hair and makeup studio, Nena Davis follows the latest beauty trends -- but she hesitates to try some of them herself. She'd love to wear her hair up from time to time, for example, but she always leaves it down to help conceal scars on her face and neck that resulted from a car crash. Davis was 12 at the time, riding in the back seat of a car driven by her brother when it veered off a cliff. "I went through a window and slid down the side of a tree," she says.

Runner Mary Decker Slaney's comeback to the track after giving birth to a daughter last summer has been delayed because of surgery last week in Eugene, Ore., to remove scar tissue from her Achilles' tendon. "She has had nagging Achilles' pain and persistent aggravation since she began training again," her manager, Brad Hunt, said. "The doctor scraped the scar tissue so that she will have a lot more mobility without the same pain and inflexibility."
