May 22, 2018 · following gastroparesis diet while managing constipation in Digestive Health

@I have been diagnosed with slow gastric emptyiing at a moderate level.The diet is extremely restrictive.I also have had constipation issues for years.This has been worse since having a small bowel obstruction 18 months ago.I have added fluids but am not supposed to eat more than 10 grams of fiber a day and no fresh fruits or vegetables, beans and onlyfew cooked vegetables are allowed.Also no fiber supplements.

Yes, they are scar tissue from previous surgery.They were seen and removed during the laparoscopic surgery.

Apr 6, 2017 · Chronic small bowel obstruction from adhesions in Digestive Health

In January I had my first bout with SBO.It was extremely painful and after a week in the hospital I had exploratory laparoscopic surgery.My adhesions were lysed and I went home 48 hours later.The surgery was practically painless and very easy to recover from.I wish I had done the surgery sooner as the symptoms were so much worse .I can not imagine going through the obstruction so many times.
