Another great suggestion.
Sometimes when I get really messed up, I eat the way I would have fed my children when they were really young and just getting over an intestinal virus. The brat diet works great when your GI tract is really off and irritated.
And I go so much somedays, I joke I go as much as a newborn baby does......but seriously, if you look at what you would feed a young child after having had D, then your diet choice is much easier to understand. You wouldn't feed a child chili or high fiber after having had D. These plain foods really make sense to me. But I had to learn all of this the hard way, 9+ years ago.....my doctors were recommending fiber, anything I wanted to eat but to take Immodium ("enjoy life", my doctor's exact words.....wrong!).......one piece of advice he gave me was correct - 4 to 6 very small meals a day are better than 3 large ones.
But anyway, stick to very plain foods for the next several days. Hopefully you'll feel better soon LadyFrog.
