Yes Randy, I've gone many routes & nothing changes. For some reason my intestines make excessive collagen, but all this collagenous colitis thing started about 6 months after chemo, & the dr. thinks it could be the culprit.

As for the GERD/reflux/hiatal hernia, I do fine with a high fiber diet with plenty of fruit & veg. I eat my home made bread, high in flaxseed, & no white flour or sugar, but only for breakfast. I am not & never was a cereal person, & some dairy products don't sit well so I seldom bother with any of them. I can handle cheese, & occasionally ice cream, but I don't do milk, or cream. Even yogurts don't go well. I eat very little in the red meats, & cannot touch garlic.....boooooo *sniff, sniff*.

I use turmeric &/or ginger, drink green, white, black, teas all day, & 2 cups of coffee mixed with decaf at 3 or 4 p.m. Water is my drink after dinner.

Mother & grandmother had/have stomach/bowel issues too, & grandmother had a real problem with ulcers. An aunt had stomach cancer.

These were/are all moron women who wore that stupid underwear which is supposed to be protective ya know!

Patricia, have you tried the "no grains" plan as written about in Wheat Belly Total Health?  I've fought intestinal woes all my life. That is, up to taking ginger, flaxseed, yogurt, and cutting back on wheat products. But, I'm no doctor. Just sayin'.

Forget Jesus on Toast. There’s a Humanist in a Tomato
by Hemant Mehta
Well, I'll be damned.I had given up on this whole atheism thing after Christians kept finding Jesus on their toast.But Redditor Masaharta found the Humanist symbol in a tomato and now the whole world makes sense again!

Comment by Patricia yesterday

Lots of innards problems here, from GERD, hiatal hernia, to irritable bowel, & collagenous colitis.....which has flared again because of course we leave for the wedding on Friday! Working on max med dosages in hopes of being better by Greyhound bus day. Changing my diet does not help because everything goes through, even water. Stupid, filthy, humiliating disease!

Comment by Bertold Brautigan yesterday

@ Patricia - I agree. I always start with a few fresh tomatoes when I make chicken noodle soup. And a ton of garlic and some fresh fennel.

Comment by Randall Smith yesterday
Spud, canned soup, you know, is loaded with salt. Be careful. Hope you're back on track soon.
And Patricia, you're right. I didn't realize I omitted salt--the ham made it flavorful enough.
Ate my first strawberries yesterday!
Comment by Idaho Spud yesterday

Thanks Joan.  If I had your digestive problems, I think I'd give-up.

The first day of my relatively minor problem, I ate nothing, just drank plenty of water.  The second day, just soup, with nothing solid in them.  The third day, soup with a few solids, and yesterday, a few more solid foods.  So far, I'm feeling well.

Comment by Joan Denoo on Saturday

Spud, hope you feel better soon! I can sympathize with you after a Nothing By Mouth restriction, and then a liquid diet. Not fun! I like chicken broth with tomato paste. It makes a great soup. .
