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!!
