Val, Ya, my surgeon says it slows transit time. I just get a lot of air sometimes that gives me heck, once the air moves I am usually back on tract. Have been sick for 4 days now with my intestines being swollen and moving hardly at all. Think my moms homemaid soup did it to me...she left it out side over night to let the fat rise to the top after cooking the chicken bones to make the soup.
Well I was not a cold enough night that night...so I think that is what messed me up, cuz I have been feeling this way since I ate the soup..so hope it calms down.
Got to go but take good care.
