I have been noticing a pattern. When my stomach is very slow and I feel accordingly, I reduce my oral intake, stick to low-fat, low-fiber foods, reduce my vegetable intake etc and increase the tube-feedings. I usually start feeling better within a few days.
I then am a good girl, stick to my diet and promise myself to keep on sticking to it. I then start to be less careful with my diet, think that I am feeling fine anyways, and slowly fat and fiber (and veggies and fruits for that matter) creep back into my diet. This actually works well for a day or two and then, lo and behold, the nausea and feeling of fullness come back and my stomach starts hurting again. Back I go again to my GP diet, again promise myself to stick to my diet etc., until a few days later, I feel good enough to defy all my resolutions and fall off the GP diet wagon once again.
It makes me sad and mad at the same time.
And yes, I have just fallen off the wagon again and am suffering big time....
