Marianne, Guess you might as well go right to the Colonoscopy if you want to cut down on amount of tests. They can see crohns disease, colitis, fibroids, cancer etc. They go up your butt with a flexible tube and can see inside of your intestines via a lighted camera on the end which shows everything on a monitor screen. They can see everything except adhesions this way. Occasionally it will show blockages but not always. It didn't show my partial blockages, not tests did.

The barium tests are less invasive but if it doesn't show anything (and sometimes even if it does) they usually go to the colonoscopy in the end anyway.

Or do you think I should go step-by-step through process of elimination. It's not that he doesn't want to do GI tests...he said he wanted to do the easiest ones for me first. I, though, don't want to do 3 or 4 tests...if one test can see most of this stuff. Do you know what I mean? I'm checking my e-mails at work and have to call the doc today for tylenol 500 or something, so I'd like to talk to him about this at the same time. All the big bosses are out kids in school,'s less stressful...but, I sure am pooping that metamucil stuff out of the body. When will it stop?
