I want to thank you for your post on intestinal obstructio, and I read a post from someone that she was told adhesions thicken as time goes on. That is the same thing I have heard of. I am thinking that is why the pain I have been in is the fact that the scar tissue gets harder as time goes on, it is almost like you can picture what is in there just from the pain you are in.
Unfortunatly, my drs do not feel my bowels are going to be hurt, but they do not know how this feels, and my GI dr STILL said to me the last time I was there a couple weeks ago, adhesion do not cause pain, there are alot of people out there, Toni, that have alot of scar tissue." Boy that rubs me the wrong way, that is another reason I have not gone for the barium enema, I am trying to find a GI dr who believes me, but here in Ohio, they are all the same.
The only dr I have who believs me is my pcp, and my gyn. The rest will not listen to me. Tired of it!
