Hello, I have very dens and thick adhesions all over mybowels, and my dr. never has ever said anything like colostomy, my 34 year old sister has one, but she has severe case ofcrohn's disease, and after 10 yeAR of being very sick, they had to do one 2 years ago. I hope you got confused with colonoscopy, my drs found a real mess when he went in last year, and he tried to do a laparoscpy after 4 months after lapartomy, and he could not get in. He did tell e I am the worst he has seen as rapid and as mant adhesions had grown after a short period of time. And the longer i go it seems like the pelvic area is getting worse everyday gets wors, the pelvic area and even my legs are so tight, and the weird pains do not go away, te pulling and burning, and now I have been having hard pains that hurt in the right side, and he said the bowels are probably all on the right side. It has been long enough, I hope they can help us soo. SORRY SO LONG, was depressed pretty much tonight!
