After my ucler was cured I was able to return to coffee, about two cups only, and 'with' food, never on an empty stomach. Too much acid, I guess. Anyway, take care of yourself, follow the doc's orders and you will be just fine in no time. At least with medicine today they don't make you live on baby food and mashed potatoes.....!!

Thanks Wanda!

That's so true about modern medicine. My father had ulcers and only stayed on the restricted diet for short periods of time. He said he'd rather take the consequences than not live life while he has it. Unfortunately, as he got older he developed coronary heart disease and had to take blood thinners which caused a bleeding ulcer so bad he had to have a blood transfusion. No way I'm going down that road! I loved my dad and he died when I was only 24 , mostly because he didn't take good care of himself. He was so smart about so many things, but just not that. I remember making a promise to take care of myself so my kids wouldn't have to worry about me like I did with my dad. I know that there are no guarantees in life, but I better start keeping that promise.

Hi Evona! Last year I went through months of pain resulting in my doctor telling me to get a endoscopy. (they put a tube down your throat and look around with their little camera) Turns out I had esophogitis, an acid related thing that had burned my esophagus. How this happened? I hurt my back really bad and I was taking ADVIL all the time. But in addition I had a passion for tomato juice which I drank every morning, then coffee, (then, I shouldn't tell you this part... scotch & orange juice at night) ACID OVERLOAD

But the reason I'm telling you this is I had to give up coffee which I love. Well, after after everything got back to normal, I find I can have the occasional tomato juice but I started drinking TEA big time. Not just Lipton's, I got into teapots & different teas, Ceylon Breakfast, English & Irish Breakfast, Chai... I drink it with milk and honey and I LOVE IT. I can't believe it, when I take a sip of my dh's coffee it tastes wretched! Tea is so refreshing and thirst quenching in the morning. But you have to (very important) buy good tea or it tastes like dirt. Loose tea preferably.

Oh yeah, and Advil turns out to be a real culprit. What a surprise. Turns out Tylenol is ok.

Also, do you do sugar much? I cut out all sugar and only use honey. I would think sugar would hurt you a lot....
So. There's my 2 cents and hat's off to you Nonny, you went through a lot to put it lightly.

oh and don't forget the magic of YOGURT! HA HA
It's true.
