Very interesting variety of answers!!!!
We are alllll sooooo different! julsgirl, an ileostomate after my own heart, I feel exactly the same as you after I eat. I have had scans which show all
open and so far no blockages. BUT Then the surgeon said IBS (IBS is uneven contractions of the COLON) My colon is not even in the picture as an ileostomate! Was sort of surprised he said that, but he is a surgeon and not a GI doc. I guess in lieu of any definitive awful issues we all just do what makes us feel best.
Dan, I love your sense of humor, you'd always be walking ie: means you are always eating?????? I wish we could meet some day, I think you would crack me up laughing.......humor the best medicine. I live in western Mass, if you do too, lets meet for some meal, then I will go for a walk and you can continue talking with our friends/spouses we bring with us. I even have to get up and walk before desert.
