Thank you for your insight on diet. I got more out your e-mail then I've gotten from my doctors in the past 14 years. I was in the hospital about a month ago for a partial blockage in my small bowel due to multiple adhesions. My husband asked if diet played a role and the surgeon said "absolutely not, she can eat whatever she wants". We were skeptical so you have re-affirmed our beliefs. Thanks Again.
