How did you know you have a partial obstruction? I was never told a dr can feel adhesions, I have had a very heavy feeling getting worse along with pain constricting pain all over my pelvis, and I would give ANYTHING if my dr could tell me he he could feel them. I only can tell you all I have been tld is DRINK DRINK DRINK water! That is one thing I do not do, but with this heat wave I AM drinking alot more, but no difference in the bowels. I took alot of senna tonight I am leaving for vacation Sunday, and do not want this to ruin our vacation, celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary! Hope to get cleaned out!!
