There are absolutely no tests to find adhesions except lap.

I had an ovarian cyst drained about 14 years ago. I have had tugging and pulling sensations in my lower abdomen along with pain for quite awhile now. I also had my gallbladder removed about 2 years ago. It was not for stones, but due to biliary dyskinesia. The surgeon said the surgery took longer than expected due to the high number of adhesions he had to pull off of surrounding organs. I also have pain and discomfort in my right upper quadrant. I believe that all these might be adhesions, but is there anyway to know for sure without having surgery? I have had bloodwork, ultrasounds, and CT scans done and nothing shows up. I KNOW this pain is not just in my head! Can anyone help me, please???
