Yes. Too many scans.: The Radiologists may tell you otherwise, but 2 CT scans of the abdomen for the SAME problem was likely overkill (& a lot of radiation). If the CT scan showed nothing, the MRI is likely to do the same. "NeuroOrtho" is probably a mistake, but the cause of your symptoms is not likely anatomical (nothing wrong physically); rather it is functional- how our intestines function.
