ALgirl I am so sorry you are going thru this. Big hugs to you! I had a stricture in the same area (now surgically removed) and I was using stool softners up until the surgery even though they no longer worked as well. These are not laxatives, but just help to soften the stool and make it easier to pass. I really feel your pain, hopefully they will get things squared away for you soon, or even if necessary get you scheduled for surgery so you don't have to suffer so much. Hugs!
