Brief Answer:
Further data is needed...

Detailed Answer:

I am sorry for the situation you are in. I am also sorry for your insurance problems.

Now, from what you are reporting, further tests are necessary to run to conclude the final diagnosis:
- colonoscopy
- abdominal ultrasound
- abdominal ct-scan especially if your general health condition is not good and colonoscopy cannot be done

To confirm whether there's obstacles in the colon.

Meanwhile, I need to know:
- your current health problems (symptoms )
- reports of tests you already did

All the best!
