Ed, thanks for the reply. I really would not be concerned about the bloating were it not for the upcoming SRT.
Juliet, I have been on a heart healthy diet for many years. No dairy, no gum, but I probably do eat too fast.
Mel, My rad onc seemed to be more concerned about diarrhea than constipation. He suggested I keep Imodium AD on hand.
I do have a little time to experiment. I'm going to try gas-x on a pre-emptive basis. I plan to take it with every meal and at bed time whether I need it or not. This will be Plan A. Plan B is a little more radical. It envolves dumping my heart healthy anti-cancer diet. No more fruit, veggies, oatmeal, whole grain breads, and so on. I will stick to the foods that have never given me a problem: Bacon and eggs with biscuits for breakfast. For lunch will hit the Whataburger for a bacon cheese burger on Texas toast, fries and a coke. Maybe I should have posted this on Mel's red meat thread (just kidding). I am 74 and enjoy excellent health (low cholesterol, low BP & good weight) and could probably handle a high fat diet for a few weeks.
Thanks for the replies, Carlos
