Thanks - I'm now done with week 10 - 2 weeks of antibiotic + 8 of the diet. I've been able to add rice back into my diet without problems. Today I'm eating black beans and they also seem to be fine. Four more weeks to go until in theory, I should be able to eat like a person without food problems!
I know you all get what a big deal it is to be able to eat more foods than you could before.
My hope is that my story will also help give someone else avenues to pursue. I'm impressed that several of you were tested - I don't know if i went to lame doctors or what, but the response I got from doctors over and over again was to just not eat what bothered me. The trouble was that the list kept growing as i became more and more sensitive to foods that had previously been ok. no one even suggested further testing for me.
My best wishes to all of you - keep looking for answers to your issues! No, your digestive issues are absolutely NOT in your head.
