What not to do after a Nissen!
Yesterday evening I wanted a hot fudge sundae so badly I drove up the the local custard stand and ate a large one. Bad, bad mistake! I got so sick with gas and my sulfite intolerance (yes, it's in icecream and the hot fudge too) I couldn't drive myself to the ER, and I couldn't get anybody else to come and drive me either. Tha local ambulance takes half an hour to get to us and then another half hour to get to the ER, so I called my husband, an hour + away. He told me to get the old paregoric and take a tablespoon. That eased things up enough to stay home and just suffer the whole night.
I'd already chewed up 4 Lactaid tablets which just made more gas, which doesn't burp up after nissen. My stomach was heaving and I can't throw up either. The problem was that I'd eaten other foods that produce gas and contain sulfite during the day: broccoli, snap peas and onions in the vegetables.
No more icecream, broccoli, onions ... Gas still rumbling today. Chicken and rice is getting boring.
