About Me: Female, 66, Cincinnati, OH, member since Apr 2009
I enjoy flying, my husband is a pilot. I love gardening, anything outdoors, canoeing, hiking, walking. Love to travel, and hanging out with my 3yr old grandson, which I would do 24/7 if possible. Trying to help others, lending an ear or support, and advice if able. I
[More] lost seven family members in a 3 year period, and then my son and his son, due to complications from FAP. So, the depression, anxiety, gastroenterology and genetics forums interests me. My grandson had a 5 organ transplant before we lost him, so the transplant forum is of interest as well. I feel if I can help just one person, then my losses were not in vain. I think it's good therapy for me as well.
Just a quick note to say hi
I have not had a large intestine for almost 20 yrs. if I eat fruits n vegs I get constipated. Have a hard time tolerating any food. I live with stomach cramps.
Any help from your son would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you and thank God that their are still like you that care.
Just a quick note to say hi! The recommendations you wrote pertaining to things to eat for people without large intestines have been more helpful than anything else I've tried. Is there anyway I could have further contact with you to learn what you have learned. Last night, I slept 6 hours straight, which is the longest I have slept in over 9 years. I've gone from going to the bathroom 18 to 20 times a day to 10 or less.. Thank you
