Hello everyone, Well I had to give in and go to the emergency room last night. The pain in my back was excruciating. I could not bend down or straighten up. My intestines are very tender and I am somewhat swollen with a low grade temp. I am heading for another bowel obstruction. The doctor I saw at the ER was honest with me, he said I was in a vicious cycle. Due to my adhesions on the intestines and bowel, they move very slowly. Due to chronic pain I take pain meds. which also slow down intestines. I have a list of things to get today to move bowels. Oh well. I have read that some of you have to use enemas also. Can anyone give advise on what works best? I have got to resolve this. I do not want the NG tube again. Thanks for all your words of encouragement, I know I am not alone. Sherry
