Sometimes they can be detected by CT scans or the like, but usually not.
I have had CT scans, small bowel follow-throughs, and a number of other
procedures but nothing has ever detected the adhesions. No one had a
clue about adhesions until I had surgery to have an ovarian cyst
removed, and I had so many adhesions the surgeon couldn't even see my
ovaries. From my experience, laprascopic surgery is the only real way
to detect them. Good luck finding a doctor, I would help but I live in
the US in the deep south! I would suggest finding a good GYN or GI
surgeon, depending on what you seem to have the most problems with.
