Adhesions, again and again

Hello @marciakeren

I am glad that you posted again after your truce with adhesions. On Connect we do have a discussion on abdominal adhesions. Here is the link, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/abdominal-adhesions/. You may find others who have had to follow a low residue diet. Feel free to read through the discussions and click on "Reply" of "Comment" if you would like to ask for more information.

In the meantime, here is a list from WebMD that lists low residue foods, https://www.webmd.com/ibd-crohns-disease/low-residue-diet-foods. Another website from Mayo Clinic also offers suggestions for foods to eat and those to avoid. Here is the link to that website, https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/nutrition-and-healthy-eating/in-depth/low-fiber-diet/art-20048511

I would also like to invite @thull to this conversation as she has dealt with a lot of surgeries that have resulted in adhesions.

Marcia, what is the most uncomfortable symptom that you are dealing with right now?

Thank you for this. I have checked the abdominal adhesions discussion and will join in that convo too. Currently, I am feeling better, but I am afraid to eat almost anything! My symptoms are always the same: at onset, a horrible squeezing pain as if someone is pushing my ribs together… then acute bouts of vomiting that can last hours… I rarely have any bowel movement issues while the attack is going on. Right now, my concern is managing the situation. I am looking for a practical diet (I am sticking primarily to clears and "white food") that will give me the right nourishment. I am also looking for a way to live with this!
