Has anyone had severe bloating and/or constipation caused by adhesions
near their intestines? My mom went to a colorectal surgeon and he said
that adhesions do not cause the severe bloating and constipation my mom
is having. They do cause the small bowel obstructions, but not the
constipation. He has done all the tests and can not determine what is
causing her symptoms. He told her to try Miralax daily. She was on
this before but it didn't help and made her very nauseous. Has anyone
had to take this?
He said that she could have an ileostomy but he is not sure it will
correct her bloating and there are risks involved because of all the
surgeries she has had.
He is not sure what else to do for her. This is very frustrating!!
