Hi,
   I was wondering if you all can tolerate corn on the cob (or any corn for that matter)?
   I used to have problems with it when I was younger.  It would constipate me.  Then after I got IBS, it would cause some diarrhea.  But last summer, I started eating it again and did great with it.
   But last night, I had some tough stuff, or maybe undercooked, and it has totally done me in.  My GI tract is rumbling to beat the band.  I have so much gas.  Dang.  I was really getting into eating it again!
   I have to admit, though, that sometimes the pain afterwards is worth the pleasure you have while eating it!
Can you eat it without paying a big price?

Hi Snowylynne,
Is it a trigger for most IBSers?

Chew thoroughly and if it is tough, forget it. I doesn't bother me but Ithink anyone with diverticulosis may be in for problems.

Thanks Snowy and Canyonbabe,

My stepfather, I know, has to be careful with things that have small, tough bits to them because of his diverticulitis. Seeds get him; he has to be careful and pick seeds out of most fruits because they tend to get in his little pocket(s) and get stuck and cause an infection. I would think that the husk parts of corn would be what gets you (you know, that part that gets stuck in between your teeth).
