Tomorrow is Monday APril 17, 2000....I am having a CAT scan done to see if anything is going wrong; I have a sneaky feeling it just might be ADHESIONS.....but I know that a CAT scan won't reveal this; but maybe the scan would reveal narrowing of intestines or something...???! I know there's a million causes for things to go astray with the gastroenterlogical systems in humans...I've already ruled out lactose intolerance; tried that lactose-free milk, the tablets, etc.....didn't help a bit.Crhon's disease was ruled out back in the '95 mystery operation. I did try drinking more water (YUK!!!) but when you get the pitcher with the water filter in it and keep it in the fridge it does taste better.....anyhow the water seems to make the bowels move more; and less pure diarrhea......Could all this trouble I'm having be due to worsening adhesions? And I guess when the doc tells me "Nothing negative has been found" in the CAT scan..Will he have me cancel my colonoscopy scheduled for June 26, 2000????!...SHould I demand the next form of diagnosis which would be MRI? Would THIS "see" adhesions? If not, WHY NOT? If the MRI turns out "all is ok"......and I'm STILL having loads of pain and diarrehea, aches, charlie-horses, bloating.... SHould I demand a laparascopy or an exploratory surgery to remove suspected adhesions causing trouble?......I know I should just wait and see.....but I hate waiting!!!!!Any of you going through anything similar now? Am getting apprehensive and worried I might get another intestinal blockage and have to end up wearing one of those gross colostomy bags for the rest of my life!!!!!!!
