sherry, Reading you list sounds just like my adhesions! I am on Prozac and have been for some time. I do believe it helps. My hysterectomy was 6 hours. My Dr. could not identify any abdominal organs and had to call in a specialist. That was about 4-5 yrs ago maybe a little longer. Prior to that I had had several surgeries. Thank God, I have not had any bowl ubstructions in some time. I have to really be careful though. I am finding that I really enjoy being on the internet and playing on my computer.Your are right about the laughter, it helps so much. Thanks for being here... denise
