Kat, I am so sorry that you are going through this. I just want you to know that you are never alone in this. I will always be here for you whenever you need to talk or need advice. First of all you need to obtain medical insurance ASAP, so that you don't accumulate so many medical bills. I know from personal expierence. Does the state you live in have medicaid ? If so, you need to apply for it whenever you get the chance to do so. You may be eligible to recieve medcaid or medicare depending on your financial statis.

Secondly, you may want to get a second opinion with a gastro specialist. The only thing is that there are no medical tests that I am aware of that will show adhesions period. The only way adhesions can be dectected is by having a laparoscopy. That is the only true way. You also may want to ask your gastro about having a colonoscopy to determine if there is anything going on in your colon. A colonoscopy can detect many things in the colon that a regular x-ray won't show. Also there is a website you may want to try : This particular website contains info on 3 ARD specialist who maybe able to help you. But first and foremost, you need to get medical insurance as this disease is quite costly.

I hope this will help you and if you ever need to talk I am always here. My e-mail is Dee
