Q. I recently had my surgery for bowel obstruction?
I recently had my surgery for bowel obstruction? None of the diet was restricted for me by doctor but should I go for any special diet.
|A1||I had surgery in 08/08 during having a c-section and hernia repair, and I'm having diarrhea all the time. I don't know what to eat nor what medicines to take. Only Immodium AD helps temporary. If I have an appointment, I don't eat breakfast or lunch. I come home and eat dinner. About 30 minutes after eating, I'm in the bathroom. Can someone help me please? I have to return back to work next month, and I don't want to be in the bathroom more than I am at my desk.|

The requirement for any special diet doesn’t seem to be so clear because only a short section of intestine is removed; your digestion is essentially unchanged. I feel no special diet is needed.|
|A3||well, i know that low fiber diet is recommended by doctors when you have the bowl obstruction. but if it was removed- so a high-fiber diet and plenty of water can prevent constipation and possibly diverticulitis. |
eat more fiber- it might prevent intestine problems.
Q. (COPD)chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
the main causes of?
