    i need some help please...I have taken on SW totally, but my gut is having a job keeping up!
    i had a rectal prolapse repaired, and the surgeon said I would be unable to tolerate too much fibre.....
    SO, I was wondering what other sources of fibre I could have, without the bulk of fruit and vegetables. Any advice gratefully recieved, as I am at the suppository stage at the moment.!!

    Think lentils, split peas etc are all good sources of fibre xx

    Could you ask your surgeon or dr for a proper diet sheet or advice about what you should and shouldn't eat ?

    Could you ask the surgery nurse for an appointment to go through a food plan with you..they tend to have more time amd listen more in my experience

    I've had to stop SW because I can't tolerate all the fibre. If you really want to stick to the plan, then I'd ask your surgeon/nurse or your GP for a referral to a dietician to help with what you can eat on the plan. I've had an awful time on it, 3wks off plan & 3 different laxatives and I'm still not back to normal! :( My consultant made comments about eating more superfree with each meals and seemed to forget every time I told her that I couldn't eat that much fibre :( Good luck. I hope you have a better experience than I did xx
