Yes, it kind of does sound restricting. Not in what you eat but in how you eat it. The foods you are supposed to stay completely away from are: cookies, cakes, candies, soda, coffee, etc. She provides a list of foods that are good with beef, another list that work with poultry, fish, etc. Still--it is a drammatic change. My biggest problem is I love rice and bread and you are very limited in eating these.
Until the polyps were removed, I was having pain in my right side and constipation (bm's not hard just not as frequent as normal). I'm still getting acid taste in my mouth when I wake up.
Right now, I am just plain scared of what the biopsy results are going to be. The polyps were not cancerous (according to the doctor) but he also biopsied the inflammed areas and find out the results tomorrow and whether or not he is going to want to a do a small bowel series. I guess I'm mainly scared to death because 3 1/2 years ago my dad died of carcinoid tumors (syndrome) of the intestines.
It is a huge learning experience for me too.
I pray we all get better.
