Son has constipation as opposed to the D and he has been told minimum fibre(as in white bread, pasta, rice, no wholegrain.brown etc) and little to no salad, fruit and veg.
Yes that is what the consultant said (honest) It made me feel pretty bad because for quite a while prior to his diagnosis I had swapped to wholegrain spaghetti, pasta,rice, bread........ hoping that it would help him and (apparently) those foods were ripping his insides to shreds where all the ulcerations were. So I really don't know (scratches head in confusion)He did say minimal fruit and veg too (and to be over cooked at that )
He did suspect a blockage/stricture as he couldn't do a full colonoscopy due to narrowing but barium follow through was ok. I believe that his deep ulcerations and inflammation caused the problems(especially as unchecked for few years)
Maybe we were told that because he suspected stricture or blockage and has 'forgotten' to tell us it now ok to eat those things-I will write it down to ask him at next appointment
