My lower abdominal pain started last August. I have found blood in my stools. So my doctor send me for all kind of tests. Last week they couldn't do the colonoscopy and when I ask the nurse he said that after they perform a scan they saw that my intestine was twisted. I won't see the specialist until June 19. I would like to know if I will need an operation to untwist my intestine. Any information on the subject is appreciated. The worse is not knowing and the waiting. I'm taking narcotic for the pain but I'm afraid of the addiction of it but the pain is unbelievable, I feel I have no choice but to take it.
