I heard that too chris, so I am just going to skip it, although, after
surgery I had severe night sweats , and it woke me up all the time. I
am going to see if there are any tests pcp can order, incase there is
something else besides just adhesions, my aunt.s friend, had a barium
enema, and that is how they found a kink in her bowel, and she has to
have surgery, so I did ask GI dr last time, he did not check the
transverse colon, just small bowel, can a pcp order any tests chris?
Somebody has to do SOMETHING!
