So it is possible, Karla, for adhesions to show up on ct scans, then I have to ask my gyn to do something, and find out if they do. All the drs have told me they do not show up on ultrasounds or CT scans. This is what makes me so mad! Are you doing okay for now karla? Thanks for trying to answer my posts, I just am so confused!
