Apr 20, 2012 · Scar tissue surrounding organs in Digestive Health

Surgery would probably worsen the condition. Tell your sister no popcorn, nuts, or anything with seeds. No raw veggies or beef. Texture of food is very important. I’ve had several small bowel obstructions and adhesions are easily inflamed by roughage. Best wishes to her. It’s hard on a sibling, too, huh?

Apr 20, 2012 · Gastroparesis, any body have any suggestions about diet? in Digestive Health

Try Align, a Probiotic. You can get it t Sam’s or Cosco. Stay away from popcorn, nuts, anything with seeds, and make it about texture of food, not spice. Low fiber, six small a day. I hope this helps.

Apr 20, 2012 · Gastroparesis with severe symptoms! in Digestive Health

Try Align. You can get it at Sam’s or Cosco. It’s a probiotic. I have Gastroparesis as well and though it hasn’t healed me, I can truly tell a difference. A doctor at Mayo in Arizona told me about it. Also, suck on peppermint candies. That helps me tremendously with nausea. Zofran has not helped me at all. You are not alone.

Apr 20, 2012 · Chronic Abdominal Pain in Digestive Health

Gastroparesis. Try Align. You can get it at larger grocery stores like Sam’s or Cosco. Though it has not eliminated my Gastroparesis, it has helped with the pain somehow. Get on a Gastroparesis diet and follow it precisely. I wish you well.

Apr 20, 2012 · bowel obstruction. in Digestive Health

I have suffered with several small bowel obstructions during the past 15 years, the first was a twisted intestine, and since then scar tissue from that surgey may be the cause of others; however, no doctor has been able to pinpoint why I had the first blockage that started my chain of events. I am told I have a “messed up gut.” I have had several colonoscopy’s and have not experienced an obstruction following it. I would think there might be a chance that the procedure “ignited” a flame, so to speak, but not directly caused the obstruction in your friend. But since no one can tell me what causes mine, I find myself trying to “blame” it on one thing, but can’t. I am sorry for your friend as I know the pain of obstructions. I hope he or she is better now and tell them eat no popcorn ever!
