When my Barium Enema was done a couple of weeks ago, I was told there was a loop in the bowel and that's what the referring doctor saw instead of a bowel obstuction. I've known about that loop for a few years now and I'm wondering if what you're describing w/your problems, if that's not what's happening here. I was also told two different stories though. That there were no problems w/the bowel, but that the adheisions were at the cause of my pain and problems having a BM. Sigh....I don't know.... I have an appointment in Toronto in early December at a Clinic down there. Hopefully I'll be able to get some answers there. Thanks for reading this long ramble!!
