Hi everyone
Saw my Surgeon 3 days ago he thinks that my blockage has not yet resolved and that surgury might be the only way around it but need to wait for small bowel series to see where they are as they think there maybe two from x-ray.
He suggested that I should try a low res diet he did give me a quick run down of foods but it was a lot to take in he said that I could download a list of recommends foods off the net, which I did but it says refinded white bread and I have no idea what that means nor does my baker
bit worried got a stich like pain just under ribs not sure why came on again yesterday feeling nauseous burping heaps again and passing wind but D's have settled like before I ended up in the ER. so thinking it might be the white bread I've been eating everything else is to the letter. so what is Refined White bread

go to any grocery store and go to the bread isle and you will see tons of refined white bread often on sale two loaves for a dollar.It contains little or no fiber, little nutrition and little taste. Children love it. Just don't eat the stuff that says wheat or whole grain.

I was on a low-fiber/low-residue diet for three years. It was incredibly boring, but, along with the 6MP, it seems to have made my stricture disappear. (Admittedly, that would mean that we caught the stricture when it was still inflammation and edema, rather than scar tissue.) Basically, you just eat carbohydrates and very well cooked veggies and fruit. Dairy, if you aren't lactose intolerant--and I suppose meat or fish (I'm a vegetarian, so I don't know). No whole grains, nuts, or any of the usual Crohn's no-nos. I told people that it was the diet you asked for when you were four years old and someone asked you what you'd like to eat for the rest of your life. Lots of mac and cheese, white bread, apple juice . . . ugh. But it worked.

I call it my white food diet. Pasta, rice, potato, fish, chicken, custard, pudding, tapioca...... Basically the more refined the food the better it is for the low residue. Apple juice is great, Apple cider is good, Apple sauce is ok, whole apple is bad.
