glasgogirl Thanks for answering. Yes I tried Miralax and it seemed to plug me up worse. I have ordered Heathers tummy kit and in the mean time I am slowly increasing fiber with diet and benefibre. I have to be careful because of the hernia surgery--don't want to re-herniate. Finally gave up on MD's and went to Naturopathic Dr. yesterday. I will try her remedies and see if they help. Since I have had every test under the sun it sure can't hurt. I am doing the fennel tea and insoluble fibre diet and have seen some improvement.
