I went for a colonoscopy Friday and the doctor said he wasn't able to do it because adhesions were blocking the bowel. I will admit I had not had one since 1985. I hadn't even heard of adhesions before. I have had two stomach staplings and a bypass to bypass the staples over the same scar. Also a hysterectomy over the same scar. I decided to look this condition up on the computer, and was surprised at all I found. What puzzles me is, I don't have a lot of pain or constipation. I have to go in for an upper GI next. I wonder if this could be something else. Does anyone else have these symthons?
