I haven't written to this message board in a long time. My first surgery was back in 1994 with many more to follow. Over the years the complications and pain from adhesions has put me where I am today. Out of work, divorced, not much going on in my life.

Several of you have written about one complication - constipation. As so many others have suggested alternative remedies I have found one as well.

Cold Milled Super Flax Meal made by Natural Brand. It is sold at GNC. One quarter cup mixed well into 4 ounces of any sort of juice drink you prefer each night prior to bed. I can almost guarantee you each morning you will have a soft and substantial movement which for me was a major, positive change.

The Flax Meal has the added benefit of keeping your cholesterol levels in check. This is actually it's main purpose.

Just wanted to pass this along....
