Thank you for your quick reply. I am seeing my GI specialist, again the second time in 24 years and went through all the tests last spring. I am presently waiting on the results on some bloowork but with only my small intestine left I am looking for ideas on diet, etc. to avoid further cutting. I have had the luxury of eating and drinking whatever I wanted to up until now but feel that some changes in my diet might help. I like to eat healthy and exercise. I eat very little red meat but when I do this seems to make me bleed. When I've mentioned to other doctors in the past they said diet does not matter but my GI specialist said do what works and again that is why I am looking for other success stories when it comes to controlling bleeding which eventually would lead to scarring.
