Difficult disease: Some blockages are due to scar tissue inside the abdomen (called adhesions), and other blockages are due to cancer growth. A CT scan may be able to tell the difference between the 2. If the blockage is cancer-related, then it may be time to think about a different chemotherapy regimen. But if it's just adhensions, then sometimes an operation helps. Talk to your doctor to investigate further
