Hi Robyne! Yes, I believe you are right re not being asble tio eat foods
that nerver were a problem befor3e a bowel resection. I have been told that
I'm lactosde intolerant, & let me tell you, it hurts like hell even while I'm
eating anything w/dairy in it. I, too, have been on a soy diet at the
suggestion of my gyn for years. He said I could not take estrogen
replacement theraopy cuz of the endometriosis. It, estrogen, makes the endo
grow. Soy isn';t too bad once you get used to it. I drink soy daily & also
take hte herbal line of Ricola Womens Health Formula, it has more
isoflavones than the One-A-Day brand...plus Calcium & Black Cohosh for
Have you ever tried the chocolate soy beverage White Wave 'Silk''? It is
totally & undeniably delicipous!!! Just like Quick. They say yuou can even
put it in the microwave for hot chocolate. It beats regular soy, even
vanilla, hands downn!.
I never knew othought re the section they removed being responsible for this
sudden intolerance. But it seems perfectly [plausible to me. I'll ask my dr
next week when I see her. I have trouble giving up my cohcolate ppudding,
tho. It helps so much w/thre nausea & heartburn I experience, & I figure if
I'm in a lot of pain anyway...why not? That's my forbidden pleasure (pizza's
defintely out of the picture).
Hope today finds you feeling not too bad. Blessed Be. Karla B.
