    Hi Maureen,

              As someone who has sufferd for many years with your condition I have just had the latest surgery LINKS procedure, diet ? Just a low fat no citrus spice caffeine, basically anything that you enjoy you can't have I do t know if you have been on meds but it's a lomg haul. I have tried everything over the yrs, diet pills alternative stuff but the only thing that worked was the surgery I had a week or so ago.   Hope this nelps
