Hello! I'm sorry to hear about your emergency surgery. My perm. ileo. is now 3 months old and I have found the noises and all have settled down. I too was eating the SCD (or GAPS Diet) leading into my surgery. However, post surgery it was recommended that I eat basically the opposite: eat no raw fruits, veggies, seeds or nuts but do eat white bread, rice, pasta, Gatorade. Say what?! My poor little system went into shock for that reason alone (just kidding). I tried to eat the easy stuff for the 6 weeks, but now I'm just about back to a 80% SCD/GAPS. I feel so many benefits to it and I like my energy level. I was told I have Crohn's, so I don't want it to show up in my small bowel. Real food (most of the time now- before I was hard core and never cheated once) is my choice now.
My jpouch was 15 years old. I had a 4cm mass next to my rectum/j pouch plus r/v fistulas. What a mess I was! Feeling really good now and hoping that was my final surgery!
