Fried foods, sausage, bacon, anything fatty including some cheeses, Italian spices all are triggers. I drink skim milk to control the butterfat in milk that I ingest. I find that timing is a problem. I know I have to go after my first meal, but don't always have the time needed for that to happen. Lately, I have been paying more attention. When my gut feels a little gassy I know I need to head toward the bathroom. Stopping to do that one more little thing as we women are in the habit of doing is not an option for us.
Do not let this condition rule your life. Take as much control as you can. It might mean carrying a larger purse with extra undies and even a light weight pair of shorts or pants as well as any pads you use. Wet wipes that are flushable are a great help. I am on the go constantly. I try to carry bags that are meant as disposable also and chuck the soiled undies. We have to be proactive in this.View Thread
I find that any Italian seasoned foods will set me off. I get my pizza very lightly coated with the sauce or order white sauce. Even that is not a guarantee. The sausages they use also gets me. I find it funny that I can eat Mexican foods that are not too hot to eat without any problems. Recently I had a colonoscopy that came back normal. That doc passed me off to a colorectal surgeon and gave me a very expensive pill to put under my tongue. I feel they are just passing me around. I haven't seen the surgeon yet so am thinking about canceling with the option of rescheduling.View Thread
