See him in 2 weeks time, to get biopsy results. Sometimes i think my problems are caused by stress and certain types of food. Cheers

You might want to keep a food diary to see which foods aggravate your system. Yes, I think sometimes stress can complicate things.

Hi jazzman,

I know if I take Metamucil it causes a large BM, sometimes with cramping beforehand. I found that getting my fiber from vegetables makes things more consistent. A food diary is also a really good idea, basically you start out only with foods you know are safe to eat and cause you no issues, then you add one food every couple of days and keep notes of what happens. That is a good way to find a diet suitable for your digestive system.


Good luck and welcome,

Chris

Cheers guys, i love spice curry/thai Balinese etc. I used to be the chilli king of my mates. I know spice upsets me now. But i think its oil/fat too. Also nuts and cream dips. Funny thing last weekend had a few late nights out with friends, drank a lot of beer a lot. Ate huge burger with fries and onion rings, beef parmigiana etc. No issues at all! Go to work tursday all ok then bang stomach problems again. Drives me my wife crazy.
