Brokenwing, My x-rays, Barium Enema, and even the colonoscopy didn't show anything. BUT....when I finally "demanded" exploratory surgery they found the adhesions I "did have" an partial bowel obstruction, and what appeared to be a herniation, all from the adhesions. I had been living on one piece of bread a day at that time, and even felt like I had to use a mallet to force that down. They were all over the pelvis, upper & lower abdomen, omentum and bowels.

I think I would probably be like that right now if I didn't take my herb-lax every night....gotta do what I gotta do to survive! Can't even imagine functioning at all without it. I know I would never go to the bathroom and I would never be able to get out of bed. I feel bloated enough even with taking it. Doctors never helped me, only made me worse, so I had to take matters into my own hands.

I have been on so many prescription medications in my lifetime I don't remember them all, but I think I was on Librax many years ago. I don't remember anything about it but if you do a search for Librax on the internet I am sure you could find out.

Glad to hear you found a doctor you can talk to....hopefully he also helps you!!! You can't keep living without food and losing weight!
