hi my name is trish,
i had a bowel resection september of 2003. just wanting to talk to anybody who has had a resection in the past. how are you feeling now? I must admitt I am doing really great. No more cramping, no more running to the loo with constant diaharea, no more drugs. My hair has stopped falling out, I feel stronger and more in control not only of my bowels but also my life.
I have found though that i can't tolerate a lot of foods i may have been able to eat in the past, like lentils, lettuce, brownor multigrain breads, milk in large servings. Anything that may be high in fibre no way.
Just want to share info with anyone outthere who has been through this terrible surgery and seen the light at the end of the tunnel.
