I know what you mean- that's why I tried Iberogast- I tried enzymes from a capsule and they did little or nothing- now on Zelnorm and acidophilus chewables-
Youre right I'll wait for results from doc and make him explain it to me-
For sure- in the surgeons office I asked over and over what is the burping - have you ever heard of it lasting so long? He wondered about delayed gastric emptying and said he was very glad I was having that test....also mentioned he has never heard of anyone having these 4 hour long burp attacks in his life- I asked him not to give up on me as I didn't think too much of my GI Dr at this point and he said _ I wish you wouldn't look at it like I am giving up- it's just that I am not the specialist I do the mechanical end of treatment" my gut tells me- forgive the pun- that I have esophogeal strictures or at least spasms and it has been getting a little help loosening the muscles and such with Zelnorm. I don't think my hiatal hernia is back and there is a good chance what is coming back up on me is something that never made it to the stomache yet
A far as fresh uncooked fruits and veggies- I was just careless- the lettuce I usually eat is shredded much better...... and I haven't had raw fruit in years- I would to pick up a juicy apple and eat it- I do try to eat raisins every day with breakfast, and enjoy cooked veggies very much- I almost crave them. I started laying off uncooked fruits and veggies when went thru something very similar to this in my 20's luckily- crazy burping ----I quit drinking alcoholic beverages at the time and I healed completely but remembered the no uncooked fruits rule.... I have maybe 1 steak a year! I do good with ham, fish, cheeses, and chicken
I also wonder what to do as far as my missing out on the vitmains of no fresh fruits- vitmains are a nono - they always make my stomach go wonky- must be the iron and/or the vitamin B- any ideas here? My husband takes a fruit and veg supplement with acidophilus built right in- not sure of the company- maybe I can try thos after GB surgery....
pray for me
