I too am glad to hear that you are feeling better so far! I hope this is
the LAST for you. A least your drs understand that adhesions on the
bowels are causing them not to work. I too could move my bowels for
three weels after my last surgery, so obviously that was my problem too.
The general surgeons here do not want to listen to it, and my pain
management dr says NO MORE surgery!! I will keep you in my prayers!
