Hi Champ -
Yup, a light eating day for sure!
I am taking 2 Immodium in the morning and 2 Lomotil at night. I am also taking small doses Metamucil morning and afternoon (most of the time, if I remember....lol) because it seems to dilute the acids and helps reduce butt burn.
I'd flown from JFK to France a couple of months before my surgery, but my surgery was because of dyplasia: I did not have active UC symptoms at the time.
We are flying LaGuardia to Altanta, 1 1/2 hours there, then on to Asheville, NC. Puddle-jumping, flights pretty short. I'm sure it'll be fine if I eat light.
When's the hernia repair? and what are your precautions now? (Obviously you'll have some precautions afterward.) Apparently I do have a hernia, and I was going to ask the surgeon how to help myself or not make it worse, but he returned my call at about 6 pm Friday and by the time he answered all my other questions I forgot!
