Any Advice Would Be Appreciated

I don't know how I am supposed to last two weeks for the results on my tests. I had an endoscopy on Thursday (piece of cake by the way, thanks for all the encouragement :) ). I have a hiatal hernia and ulcer which I had no clue because all my problems are below the stomach. My intestines hurt so bad I feel like I ate razors, the pain is unbearable, it doubles me over. The doctor gave me bentyl but it really doesn't touch the pain. I cant take Advil or Aleve but I think I can have tylenol. Immodium makes things so much worse in the long run. I am thinking of switching to a liquid, soft diet (How I am suppose to work like this I really don't know). Jello, applesauce, eggs, soup, maybe slimfast or ensure. I am miserable. I just need to make it through eight hours of work each day. Shopping or even going out right now is not possible and I really hate being stuck at home. It is hard to decide what to eat since I don't know what is causing this.

If the pain is in your intestines, perhaps a low-residue diet would help? It's mainly liquids, and meat and fat... which is a bit easier than liquids alone. :-)

Slimfast and Ensure have gluten, and eggs cause bad reactions for many celiacs. Try a low-residue diet, as Tiffany suggested.

I have never heard of a low residue diet before. I looked it up on the internet and it seems to be something that will be good for me.

Thanks so much, at least I have something to start with. I have a call into the doctor right now too

Thanks
