I was run through sm.bowel follow through, CT scan, Upper endoscopy, colonoscopy and all that was identified was GERD and possible lower back arthritis later on in life. All it did was basically disprove that it was 'something else' as my GYN kept insisting. That decided wether or not she'd have to go back in, which she did. (more adhesions and more endo). As I understand it, that history is why no Dr. wants to risk further surgery unless it is life threatening.

I wish that they did have a non invasive method of detection!! We probably wouldn't have to wait 2 or 3 years to get a final decision out of Social Security!!!!

Wishing everyone pain free days!!
