@PETI, had they taken any x-rays, ct scans, barium swallows, or any other type of studies like that which didn't show the twisted bowels? Because all the studies like that they have ever done of me, don't show anything like that - during the "bowel obstruction" incidences OR afterwards when everything is okay ; nothing like a twisted bowel ever shows. And I did get surgery several years ago which revealed I'm full of adhesions. At the time, they removed them, but of course normally later after that surgery there will just be more new adhesions forming afterwards, especially for someone who is known to form a lot of adhesions easily. So that's why it seems like mine are from adhesions. But just like adhesions don't usually show on those studies, maybe twisted bowels don't show either?--I'm curious? - and another thought I have is, WHY would the bowels get twisted?- isn't it possible they might get twisted because of adhesions? I know adhesions cause some of the organs to stick to different parts of itself or to abdominal walls or to other organs, which may end up causing them to twist?
