i have also had my gallbladder removed and an incarcerated hernia surgery- in which i belive the doctors cut some of my adhesions- they never let me know and i was told i had acid reflux disease for years. i have frequent trips to the hospital - but i won't let them operate any longer. i heard the meds for IBS are actually really bad for adhesion patients with intestinal problems. even the meds warn about it .they have alos tried anti-depressants for me- i do take an anti anxiety pill- because stress seems to bring on my pains- along with certain foods... i dunno?
