Just wanted to let you know I am thinking of you and praying that things go well with the doctor. My best suggestion would be to tell him what is causing you problems and ask if he has any suggestions for dealing with it. Tell him what you already know, and if he tries the "adhesions don't" route, ask him if the bowel would work normally if it were all kinked and twisted out of shape so that nothing can pass normally.
Other than that, Hon, I really don't have any suggestions. My candle is still burning, so you're included too ;-)
