Shared e-mail with my doctor today. I am glad to say he is on board with my plan and gave input. So I will hope to be able to eat more foods right away, and then add suspicious foods slowly. He also stressed that I need to write down everything. Just connecting with him and having him on-board is a relief.
His recommendation is to start with the IBS elimination diet and cut out what I already know is a problem.
So far today, I ate only rice till this afternoon and have since had an egg scrambled without milk added or oil. And I just got done eating a banana. I feel pretty safe eating these foods. I am still very hungry and need to figure out what to eat for dinner that is relatively safe. I have a IBS cookbook I hope to find something.
