```If I understood the statement of your problem correctly, omitting the term
k*Log[x] works merely because the mathematical expression is then no longer
implicit.  Therefore, using your original mathematical expression, it does
not look like you are going to be able to generate x = f(y) from y = f(x) in
this case.  Your original y = f(x) is an implicit function.
