A CT scan would show a complete bowel obstruction, since the bowel would dilate behind it, but would miss most partial obstructions - enough to make you miserable but not cause dehydration or bowel rupture. It wouldn't show a prolapse or a pouch twist or outlet stricture, unless one of these managed to cause a complete obstruction.

I'm sorry you had that experience at the ED. When you wrote that you had gone I was pretty pessimistic. I hope you're still calling periodically about appointment openings. Have you tried to get in to see Dr. Bo Shen up at Columbia?
