My bowel issues have lessened too, I’ve regained a little bit of push ability which has enabled me to be a little more lenient with what I can eat. Went through a year from a relapse in March 2014 when I had to heavily modify my diet to be able to prevent constipation. What a performance!
- no grains apart from oats
- no processed food
- no red meat
- never ever more than 1 egg
- no cheese
- very little dairy
- loads of veg
- loads of fresh and dried fruit
- BEANS BEANS BEANS
- no bananas (OMG bowel glue!)
- no cooked carrots, because apparently those bung you up too (who’da thunk?)
but by the same time last year that little smidge of ability had returned. There hasn’t been any further improvement, but I’m very happy that what has returned has stayed so far, I can eat the odd biscuit again without fear of reprisal of the nastiest kind.
It’s hard to understand why some things improve and others don’t isn’t it. Also how some things are bad for a very long time and then improve. I’d be interested to know the science behind it (if my cog fog would let me understand it of course!)
