I underwent a successful, 5-hour surgery last week to remove more than half of my liver and I am back home now. I didn't require an enema prior to the surgery. I arranged for all my own food to be brought to the hospital by my husband and adopted daughter. I had an absolutely wonderful surgeon -- Dr. Ian McGilvray of Toronto.
My problem now is that my reduced bile production is causing certain symptoms that are posing challenges with my regular IBS-safe diet. I am in great need of a dietician (or whoever you would suggest) who could help me with a diet to manage my IBS and reduced bile situation while my liver rejuvenates over the next month or so.
Would you have a dietician to recommend -- someone knowledgeable in treating IBS? I find so many dieticians think they know how to treat IBS, but, in fact, they really do not understand it at all.
As you know, I live in Toronto, Canada, so I would need someone willing to take me on right away by phone. I can pay them via a Canadian-based credit card.
Please let me know. I remain very grateful to you for all that you have done for me over the past 16 years of my life. Because of you, I lead a relatively normal life IBS-wise. I refer everyone I know with IBS to you for help.
