I happened upon this forum in a search for low resdiue diet information. I had uterine cancer 7 years ago and my lower intestines were highly radiated in the process. In the last year I have been in the hospital 3 times because of a blocked bowel. One hospital visit was very serious resulting in abdominal surgery for a totally blocked bowel. My Dr. thought that it was pain meds that were mainly causing my problem. But the last time (4 months ago) I had not taken any pain meds so the Dr. concluded that it was my radiated intestines causing the problem. Question: Does anyone have any good suggestions for getting info about low residue diets? I have found some bits and pieces online.

Hi there Radiated,

I'm so sorry you've been having such a tough time.

You might like to click on the "nutrition" link in my signature for some basic tips, and then you might be able to ask some more specific questions :-).

All the very best to you,
