Apologies if this is posted twice. My browser has difficulties with this forum.
I will be undergoing bowel cancer surgery this Wednesday. I was alarmed in the pre-op by the apparent lack of awareness on the nurse's part about the dangers of gluten intolerence.
My situation is compounded by the fact that I am in Canada and the language in the hospital is French. I speak French, but I miss details and have difficulty with unfamiliar vocabulary.
I will take my own bread and cereal, but I will have to check everything else that is provided. I am thinking that I will have to be careful of soup and sauces as they may contain flour and other binding agents. Indeed, anthing that contains a binding agent may be dangerous.
So my core question is: What were your experiences regarding gluten-intolerence and coeliac's dietry requirement in hospital? What food did you have to be careful of and what food was safe?
