I too was taking the Zelnorm (my primary care doc. prescribed for chronic consp. due to endo and adhesions)until my GI doc. took me off. He said, anyone having had abdominal surgery or who have history of adhesions(i.e: appendectomy, gallbladder or hysterectomy) are not to take Zelnorm! It can cause the adhesions to tear away from the bowel and you can bleed to death!

Stool softnerS and laxatives do nothing for me. Believe it or not, M.O.M. (Milk of Magnesia) taken twice a day has helped a lot. If I even miss one dose I get plugged! Unfortunately, I'm in Illinois, so can't help you with who is good in Texas. Good luck
