Adhesions after Colectomy/Infection Causing Eating Pain?

Hello,

28yo male diagnosed Ulcerative Colitis at age 8. Colectomy with omentum removal at 17 with ileoanalanastamosis following. While I had ileostomy I suffered Small Bowel Obstruction and ileostomy leaked into cavity during surgery, resulting in large peritoneal infection. Ten years later I suffer nausea and pain below breastbone on empty stomach and will hurt for hours after eating (doesn't seem to matter what) with bloating and pain referring into left side of back. Am hunched forward most of the time and it feels like my stomach is twisted. Gallbladder was removed this year but main symptoms persist. Have tested negative for ulcers and other biliary/GI issues. Treating Pouchitis with Entocort and doctoring at Cleveland Clinic. Been through two pain clinics, two teaching hospitals and now ready to have adhesion specialist take a laparoscopic look (Dr. Semertzides, Cinncinati OH). Could a partial obstruction or bowel adhesions cause these symptoms? I'm pretty sure I'm starving myself to avoid pain and desperately want life on track. Am 105lbs down from 150 before initial colectomy and losing time with my toddler due to physical limits.
