Reply to "Abdominal Pain - Possibly from Adhesions"

Hello!  I am new here.  I had a total colectomy with J-pouch in 2008 and I have been dealing with abdominal pain and nausea for the last 2 years and like you all of my test are coming back pretty much normal.  I have had some liver test that have been slightly abnormal and they saw mild dilation on my MRI but my surgeon and GI doctors are all saying nothing that should be causing the pain I am having.  They explored endo, I even had a complete hysterectomy to try and alleviate the pain but even after that I am still having the same pain as before.  I had a capsule study done in 2017 and they said I had a portion of my small bowel that was slow moving and told me to try laxatives, but that didn't provide any relief either.  I am seeing a new GI doctor and they are repeating the capsule study this Monday to see if there was something missed or something that has changed since the last one.  I'm hoping it will provide some answers.  As bad as I feel that there are others going through the same pain as I am it is nice to know that I'm not crazy.  Thank you for sharing your stories.
