I'm not sure I'm in the right forum and maybe someone can direct me where to go. I had major abdominal surgery over two years ago (bladder removed). After that my bowels never started working right. No paristolis. I ended up IMPACTED BIG TIME and had to be hospitalized. Since that time I was prescribed--mirilax, metamucle and zelnorm but zelnorm is not on the market. I had three little movements a day but felt good--as though I had had a satisfactory evacuation. That slowly quit working. I now take supplements called Flora Gensis and Eliminator 1. The first firms up the stool and the other really gets me moving. I go often and not with a lot of warning. MY QUESTION IS SIMPLY --- IS TAKING ALL THIS STUFF JUST MAKING ME GO OR IS IT ALSO CAUSING THE BOWEL (PARISTOLIS) TO COME BACK. I know that it takes time.
Can anyone give me some input.
