Diagnosed with totuous colon. What is the reason? Had mild scoliosis, bloating and diarrhea

I was diagnosed with a tortous colon a few weeks ago during a colonoscopy . I then had a barium enema. The radiologist sad it was the most tortured colon he had ever seen. I am wondering about the cause. I am an active 44 year old woman. I am small and slim. I have a slight scoliosis and crooked hips. I have not had any abdominal surgery within the organs but did have liposuction on my abs. Can I have adhesions from the liposcuction? I have never had problems with constipation but have always had a very sensitive stomach and suffered from bloating , gas, diarrhea for many years. I was tested for negative for celiac.

Greetings of the day

There is no cause of concern if you have no abdominal/colonic symptoms. I have seen tortuous colon in many cases and they are just incidental finding. They may not always be symptomatic.
Liposuction is done from the abdominal wall and peritoneal cavity is not entered so its known to cause adhesion, as the abdominal organs are still virgin.
