Thank goodness..not that you're suffering too, but I was beginning to think I was crazy! The scar tissue makes more sense to me than the fluid. My primary care physician just recommended a fiber supplement, but I have to admit I'm a little afraid of it. I do not react well to natural fiber, so everything they suggest seems to make it worse. Dairy is definitely next on my list of things to reduce, but I'm not sure what will be left to eat?! I am just constantly amazed at how many systems are affected by this disease..there has to be some sort of balance, right??
