Re: Bowel resection a year ago and still have pain

See, I've been doing all that (except for the prunes). My question is whether I've been too aggressive with fiber intake, and if it could be irritating my repaired bowel. And if the high fiber intake could be causing the pain. I am wondering if going low fiber for a while might be a way to ease the pain.

And I have tried to see my doctor, but both the surgeon and my PCP said that I should go to the ER if I have pain. Well, I'd be at the ER every day if I took that advice. They won't schedule a CT scan unless I go through the ER, and I don't really need to go to the ER, plus is costs much more if you are not admitted...which I don't think will happen.

Thanks for your response. Any other ideas out there?
