thank you for the information... you are 5 months past surgery... how long after your surgery could you say it wasnt the surgery anymore and you could truely judge the food... im two weeks today.. and when have you healed enough to truely judge the food........ im surprised i had just white rice tonight and its the first time i havent run to the bathroom right after i ate..... even soup goes right thru.. but i dont get cramps and thats what matters to be right now..... got cramps with rice.. and i know its coming... but it seems tolerable right now...
i see the surgeon for my first follow up tomorrow., and scarey for me she is suppossed to be clearing me if all goes well for a 2 level lumbar fusion in the beginning of february.. scarey thinking intestinally i would be ready for this in another 3 weeks.
i do like the food journal idea.. i will start that... just if someone could give me an idea when can you truely judge the difference between post surgery diarrhea and food problems.......... and im guessing if i had problem with a food before hand i will now too... before i get sick and try it... i have gastroparesis ( very severe case of also) so food i have to chew alot scare me.. and i probably wont try them..... but need to start rotating something in besides brothy soup and scrambled eggs and maybe the white rice..
thank you for the info.....
