Hello LittleFay, thanks for the microwaved apple trick i will have to try this out. i received a pampered chef microwave chip maker for christmas and i am excited to try the homemade sweet potato chips and the apple chips! i am going to request a consultation with a dietician when i see my gp at the end of the month, hopefully that will give me more options. i am already bored of stir fries and still have two and a half months before i see the gastro specialist again. hopefully he will let me start working back in raw fruits and veggie..... i would kill for a salad right now!

I have been on the "no raw fruit & veggie' for a brief time and know what you mean. One thing I enjoy is slicing an apple very thin as if making a pie, and microwaving in a dsih for 2 1/2 min. You can sprinkle a pinch of sugar and/or cinnamon beforehand. Much better than applesauce. It's tasty and you can eat it slowly piece by piece. Slowing down helps me with digestion. Now, I have to remember that I have a hiatal hernia and eat less, but more often. It explains why I have so much GERD lately. I completely forgot because it was a small part of my medical test results last year. I like chewable papaya tablets that you can find at the drug store in the vitamin and supplement aisle. Walgreen's has their own brand. They may have to order it for you. It helps digestion because of it's enzymes, similar to bromelein in pineapple.

Hello team, i have been having bowel/digestive issues for about 5 years, in December i saw a gastroenterologist finally for the first time. All in all the appointment went well, i felt he actually listened to my concerns and ordered some more testing(as ulcerative colitis is in my family). I fluctuate between constipation and diarrhea. When moving a constipated stool i have extreme pain and nausea, I also experience a large amount of upper gastro issues, bloating, burning, pain.

The Doctor prescribed an antispasmodic to be taken 3 times a day, which appears to be working for me. It does not control all the symptoms but does help to make them more tolerable. He also would like me to have some allergy testing as he feels i may have some food allergy's. So far i have determined a couple of triggers for me, egg yolks, raw onion, and peppers. The doctor has put me on a pretty restricted diet, no raw fruits and vegetables, no alcohol, caffeine or chocolate, no whole grains or seeds, and no spicy foods. most of this i can deal with but the no raw veggies or fruit is killing me. I am a vegetarian and most of my diet was raw fruits and veggies. I have been following his recommendations since i saw him but i am becoming disheartened and becoming bored with cooked veggies.

i look forward to hearing any suggestions anyone may have. I go back to the doc in march and hope i will be able to resume some of my raw veggies.
