I had corn on the cobb for dinner. I know it was wrong, but what can I do now to get the corn out of my system to get rid of the pain. I have been up since 130 am. Thanks so much for any help you can offer.

Corn is my enemy, I sometimes eat it and pay later... It works its way out for me though.
Maybe you can eat some other safe foods like mashed potatoes or liquids? I hope the corn is not stuck
 
others might have better ideas...

I would probably do as Karendee suggested and stay on a liquid diet for a day or two. Corn is a major no-no for the majority of Crohnies, me included. I think you are just really going to have to wait it out until it moves thru your system. Sorry~

I love corn and break down and have it a couple times a year. I think mash potatoes should be issued with corn....:P

oh boy--I know exactly how you feel. I usually try to walk around the house a little--like in circles around the living room and dining room. Rubbing my tummy and applying heat to the area that feels blocked. If I drink red zinger tea or a good cup of coffee that usually helps move things along. Keep the liquids coming.

i loved corn. it was one of the first foods i found i couldnt eat. then popcorn. ugh. but now after 14 years i dont miss it. and now that i have educated myself about nutrition, you are probably doing yourself a favor by NOT eating corn, thus this disease, from one pov, is doing us a good thing by making us not able to tolerate corn.

whenever i eat something my body doesnt like, there is nothing i can but ride it out. that means resting, fasting and plenty of water for like 1-3 days until symptoms subside and then introducing easily digestible foods. it has to work its way through your system. from my experience, purging at either end wont expedite the recovery time. once it goes down, the damage is done and it is time to pay.
