Hi all!  its val again!  I  would like to thank all those people who replied to me recently.  still very undecided as to whither i  should go out for a  meal with my hubby and 2  other friends, as i  don't know what best to eat!  I  don't have the diarhoe all the time, but my stools are very loose, and am going very frequently.  scared to eat anything incase i  get the nosea and bloating.  so glad i'm not alone re my fear of vomiting, and will do anything to avoid this.  by the way, to the lady who asked about the soup i  had on Tuesday, it was a  beef broth.  the only thing i  can think of which might have triggered the bloating diharho plus nosea, was that i  had a  chicken with a  sauce which might have had cream in it.  if i  do go 2morrow, what will it be safe for me to eat?  i'm so scared its unbelievable!  (and believe me, i'm not a  wimp!)  hope some of you reply to me again, as its so nice to know there's someone out there for you!  hope you all get better soon.  Val.

    I would have a good grilled Salmon steak. It is full of omega 3 and has less mercury. A good baked potato. Sweet tea is good for us that experience diarrhea. That is just my suggestion. I went out with my sister and her husban the other day for his birthday and had a grilled peppered staek, a baked sweet potato with just cinnamon and a dish of yogurt and blueberries and sweet tea w/lemon. I had NO diarrhea, bloating and I was so happy. Let me know what you do and what you eat. lol

    Hi val I would stick to very plain food. Beef broth is probably fatty too. Stick to mash potatoes plain fish or chicken or turkey. Don't eat any red meat as fatty. Also no tomatoes or salads or green veg for now just in case. I am living on puréed carrots parsnips and turnips at the moment as well as Turkey, chicken and fish and boiled rice, bananas are also good. Also be careful of dessert especially dairy based. If your near a drugstore (if your in the US) please get yourself caltrate calcium tablets 600 plus vitamin d. They will definitely help you and calcium is good for all of us women! Take half a pill 3 times a day for a few days and see if you notice a difference. If after a few days there's no improvement increase the dosage to 1 full tablet 3 times a day. Also take them with food. They are definitely worth a try and won't do you any harm. If I can help in anyway just message me here. I know what your going through. The very best of luck and remember avoid dairy fatty creamy and spicey food for now. X

    Hi 

    my hubby has IBS in fact I am wondering if he has bile salt malabsorption as he always has diarrhea since child hood. Anyway his gp prescribes mebeverine he takes he half an hour before he eats only when we go out for a meal and it stops the bloating stomach cramps and D. As there is nothing worse when u r out than rushing for the loo. It has worked and he can now relax when we go out instead of always leaving early. 

    See your gp ... You may be pleasantly surprised 

    enjoy your meal
