Jim, I've read your message and think it's too risky. I heard about successful cases of removing obstruction using air. Those were not adhesions related cases. But using colonoscopy...?? I suspect it's very dangerous and also recommend you to re-read some times info from Beverly. She's absolutely right. Besides your adhesions could be not related to colon at all. And so your doc (even in the abstract) can't 'jar' adhesions. BTW what does 'to jar' mean here? To tear out them or just to try to pull if he wants to find their possible location? I guess complications there are much more possible than the illusive advantages... :(
