I had a colon resection in May, golfed my first game a week ago Thursday. Friday went to the mountains for a week with horses, rode four days for four hours at a time. Cooked everything on an open fire. Ate things I haven't eaten in over a year: bacon, sausages, potato salad, coleslaw, brocccoli, asparagus, peanuts, pork chops, etc. Never had any D, cramps or gas.
Had minor problems right after surgery which I think was a result of adding too much fibre too quickly.
Off to Calgary today to babysit my grandson for two days then back to the mountains after the long weekend.
Take weekly methotrexate injections and am having a small bowel ultrasound in September but 'all is good' right now.
