First of all Have a paper due, need info @ non alcoholic italian beverages. Pls. include Medifast recipes? Hoping for any answer or 2. Another question on my mind: Alright... I'm officially seven months out and am still having issues with eating Medifast food but am forever grateful for Click and Greek yogurt and having friends who will eat whatever I bake so I just bake til my hearts content and give it all away :).

But now that I'm really trying to push the enveolope with foods (meats/veggies/fruits) I have noticed an odor that permeates the area once I release it from my inners ... n a S t y!.

I'm constipated regardless of my.

Miralax.

, smooth move tea and trying to up my fiber/veggies..

Last night an egg on a slice of toast almost killed me (real bad pain) and I notice that I feel a slight stinging sensation and pulling about 30 minutes after I eat Medifast food and the uncomfortableness stays for hours. Although it wasn't a good night and yeah, I'm back to protein shakes for a day or so, it was a great reminder of how far I've come because last night used to be my existence and for that I am very grateful! WooHOO!!!!.

I'm waiting to have the 'new pt coordinator' get in touch with me so that I can get my second opinion..

On a good note, I'm back to work full time and yeah, it's exhausting as all hell but heck I'm sleeping like a baby :) And I'm slowly figuring this stuff out. And for the first time in over 20 years.... I'm not cooking! I'm pretty psyched about it!.

Thanks for any insight and always being there for me when I needcha's my DS friends and family : ).

Gobble, gobble!.

Me too! S-M-E-L-L-Y!!!!!! Used to be a smooth move all by myself but now.... NOT! Every third day IF I use some prunes and.

Coffee.

! Just started regular digestive enzymes and.

Probiotics.

..

Hope.

They help. My partner is using "Good Belly" probiotic juice drink. She says it's helping her....

So glad you are getting another opinion, Colleen. The pain sounds like something that definitely needs to be addressed further. Keep us apprised ok?.

I had a really bad experience with a scrambled egg on toast too! the only egg I can eat is soft boiled and mashed up in a bowl til it looks scrambled. No idea why that works and the scrambled doesn't! It's a mystery!.

Gobble Gobble back at ya! :-)..

Well Col let's see, if you eat dead animals and they still have to go 26 1/2' (of the small, large intestines you have left). The shit is rotten by the time it sees light and the end of the tube. LOL.

Remember if it rots in life it's.

Going to rot in you.

After my colonoscopy, I added some carb fiber and started taking Align and eating.

Activia.

Once a day..

I am regular for the first time this year! A nice little well-behaved BM every day. No more retention log and hemorrhoid bleed every three days with the "eau de toilette" for me!.

I eat very little poultry or meat, BTW...

Thank you sooo much! I bought some.

Probiotics.

Today and started taking 'em....

Yeah, I feel a pulling/stinging sometimes ~ 30-40 minutes after I eat right about where my distal anastamosis is. Go figure!.

Anytime I eat something of any consistency, I'm sometimes doubled over and nauseated too boot!.

BUT, there are more better days than not and that is huge and I'm sooo flipping psyched! I'm kinda feeling like I'd rather not eat than be sick but I'm hanging in there. Me and Fage baaaaaby!.

; ).

Gobble, gobble!.

It just does not seem right that your recovery has been so difficult..

Just wondering if you are drinking enough water, all the.

Reading.

Ive done says that it is vital to drink anywhere from half hour to fifteen minutes before you eat, it helps to lubricate, also make sure daily intake is 64 oz a day..

Went thru the smelly and constipation thing too. Smelly still stays with me 2 yrs out. Kind of keeps me in track of what I ate. At times is like a tattletale. Keep lysol/air fresheners in bathrooms. LOL.

As to constipation - tried everything (except enema) including all those "fiber" drinks/tablets & high fiber foods. Finally went back to the old "starch & some fat in foods". I found the more protein intake - the more constipated. Started eating some potatoes, pasta, bread with margarine, using cooking oil in ground beef (for spaghetti sauce), etc did the trick. Now of course did not overeat but bringing those type items in made a world of difference...
