I have chronic abdominal pain. I have adhesions which are causing small bowel obstruction. My doctor did an enterogram. it can be by CT or MRI. It is different from a routine abdmen scan. it was the only thing that showed my original problem.
I had surgery to get rid of the obstruction but now I have residual chronic pain. Searching for an answer on how to treat it.

Hi Pam,
The problem with adhesions is they always seem to come back causing more pain. I’ve learned in all my research that the techniques used during surgery (handling of organs, types of gloves, etc..) are crucial in trying to minimize adhesions. It wasn’t until my 6th abdominal surgery, that I came across this information and I can tell you first hand adhesions are painful causing our organs to stick together so every time you move you hav pain. If adhesions are what’s happening with you I know I have found 1 doctor so far that specializes in nothing but chronic pelvic pain, adhesions, endometriosis, he is Dr Cook in Los Gatos, Ca. I’m currently searching for other doctors like this throughout th US because no all of us can go to California and will post names as I find them. I hope this helps somewhat.
Good luck!!
