I am finishing out Week 9 on the elimination diet I started shortly before Thanksgiving. This was to attempt to get my post-infectious IBS-D under control. I have been fighting IBS-D since the beginning of 2014 when I was unlucky enough to get a pretty bad case of food poisoning at a local restaurant. Things are going well overall and I am happy to report at least one new successful food reintroduction – EGGS!
Well, here I am 4 days into Week 4 of my Elimination Diet. If you’ve been reading the earlier posts, you know I am suffering from Post-Infectious IBS-D, and have been the entire year. There hasn’t been a day I haven’t suffered diarrhea and usually multiple times, unless I’ve used immodium. Until now.
Today, I did not make my normal morning visit(s) to the bathroom. Nor did I at noon, or after work. And here I sit at 10pm, and still no bowel movement. I’m stunned. I’m almost afraid to write it down for fear I will jinx myself.
I am not on immodium and I haven’t done anything new or different. Just the same old Elimination Diet with supplements.
