That's a lot for an 18 year old to deal with!
What type of surgical procedures have you had done? Were they for the IBS? That sounds like not so much fun. So after seeing all these doctors, they have diagnosed you with IBS?
What fruits and veggies can you eat? Do you need to cook your fruits and peel all of them? And how the heck did you figure out which ones you could tolerate when the pain is chronic? When I am in pain everyday, it seems impossible to determine which foods are the problem foods and which are the safe ones. It seems like it doesn't matter what I eat,the pain is there. I do know I cannot handle raw lettuce and probably not course brown rice. but not sure yet.
Perhaps the soy milk is a problem for you as well. It can cause cramps and bloat and gas for many. Have you tried rice milk instead? Just a thought.
