After suffering with IBSD and then IBSA following some dodgy strawberries a number of years ago I seem to have gotten the everyday situations under control. Here's how in case it helps anyone! I drink a Vitality every morning and then have cereal for breakfast (no milk). Mid morning 1 apple. Lunch grapes or an apple and a granola bar or small sandwich of ham or crisps. Tea something home cooked - fajitas, curry, roast dinner, chicken breast with salad or on a wholegrain bun easy to cook foods really. Since discovering my daughter was lactose intolerant we have lactose free cheese at home - never realised that regular cheese often gave me stomach ache. I rarely eat ready meals now - last time I had one I had stomach ache all night. I was never a big takeaway fan but do miss KFC although last time I had one I got bad trapped wind. Cooking at home and eating less and more regularly has seen me have 1 IBSD attack this year, shift a few extra pounds and feel healthier. Regular exercise helps - if I miss gym sessions my stomach feels sluggish.My advice needed bit - I am going on holiday next week and have not flwon in recent memory without a D attack. I'm not a keen flier and I find all the passport, tickets, have I forgotten stuff stressful?! I am starting to tale Calms tablets in the hope they help. Does anyone have any ideas? I have taken Immodium a couple of times this year when out on work events as a precautionary measure but find even one in the morning can cause C for a couple of days. I won't risk going to the airport without taking one but is there a way of getting over the C afterwards?
