I find that eating light and eating right helps. I am down to soups and salads now. I am in alot of discomfort with adhesions and am making an appt with my gyn to discuss surgery options. I am going to try myofacial release first and see if it helps at all.
I have been laxative dependant for years now and am doing everything I can to avoid an obstruction. I use a heating pad at bedtime to relax my abdomen and a water colonic to keep things open. I feel the occassional stabbing pain and feel the pulling. This is usually after I eat. I do not eat nuts or popcorn at all anymore. My stomach seems to be frozen as well, and I have more and more trouble digesting as time goes on.
I am getting more and more stories of people having surgery only to wind up where they started. If I had the money I would go to germany and get the best surgeon I could find. I am glad this board is here.
