I've been hit with a wave of nausea...but, want to try my best to answer a couple of your questions...yes. I had surgeory through an OB doctor...he determined my fallopian tube adhered to my sigmoid colon...causing the blockage. You eat very well, Rosie. I've heard lots of stuff about flaxseed...but, have yet to try it.and know (today) I realize I can no longer drink soy is something I'll be trying suggest vanilla? Is the plain bad? My bowel movements were also solidifed but ribbony...eventually it led to constipation then diarrhea. You'll know when it's time to do something more serious about your bowels. Unfortunately, the body very unkindly let you know when things are worsening. Bowel problems and a big fat toe...I wonder if that adhesion isn't attached from your toe to your butt...LOL What will they do to this big toe of yours? I pray your bowel problems don't intensify and your big toe heals well. Bet you can't even wear a shoe, huh? Love, Marianne Thanks- your e-mail makes me feel better.
