You have been through so much. So many laxatives. I don't have a bowel obstruction, but I hope very much that this new adhesion gel provides you with relief. I have a cat who has a catnip toy that's a doc. White coat and all. In the past, there were times I truly enjoyed watching kitty play "bat the doc"! Actually, I believe there are good doctors out there. It's the sour grapes that make it tough.

With Hope that you have better days ahead,
