Reply to "critical illness insurance/loss of work coverage"

Hi all. I had a CT enterography and it didn't show anything. The other surgeon (second opinion) is doing an MRi enterography in March (long wait times in Canada for MRI's)  but the first one said the two tests show virtually the same thing. I guess we will see--it is kind of my last hope for answers other than getting some kind of complete blockage they will do emergent. They are all partial blockages that always clear. I try to manage what I can at home with a liquid diet but sometimes the pain is just too unbearable or it won't clear which is why I go to the hospital. When they get that bad I need the bowel rest/gastrografin that I can't do at home. Even if I stay home, i'm in no shape to work which is the larger issue I mentioned. I also think they need a record of them at the hospital if I am to make any case for how much these are affecting my life/convince them to try surgery. 

I don't know why they won't operate--they keep saying they don't know where to look which makes sense if the scans are clear, but the pain is always in the exact same place so I wonder if they can't just go in and look there. Sigh, it's probably not that simple though....
