Would levsin or something else work? Just trying to think .... I've gotten lots of GREAT advice from an enlightened pharmist in my old hometown from Pharmaca which is a wholistic pharmacy ... I think they have a 24/7 call in line ... maybe you could call and talk to someone or a store in the nearest town? Mine from Sonoma, CA could help - ask for either Jonathan in the Pharamcy or Paul (GM) or Shizandra who is a nutritionist ... 707-938-1144. They usually have good ideas. The corporate website is: http://www.pharmaca.com/pharmacy/pharmacy.
Those are all the ideas I can think of for helping with the gas issue ... as for strictures/obstructions, I've never had one so I have lean on you guys if/when I get to that point. I'm hoping my problems ARE gas! As they hurt!
Hang in there ... does a heating pad help? Can you tell I'm a mother?
