You are lucky someone told you that, my drs all say that adhesions show up on NO tests. I ahve begged my gyn to do an ultrasound and CT scan and he says it will show nothing because my female organs are gone, I am planning on asking him when I take my sister Friday if he will pleas edo one, it is not going to hurt,

Then my other sister said he did an ultrasound on her 3 weeks ago, and said she had some small functional cysts on her ovaries, and to take provera , and she stopped it, will not listen, and she says he did another one today, she tells alot of tales, when I had functional cysts he always told me they are nothing to worry about, it happens when women ovulate, and the eggs get stuck there each month. I wish I could talk him into doing some test for me, he keeps on saying a CT scan will not show adhesions, isn't it possible, I would rather have a negative test befor e any surgery for now!
