Hi Laura, thanks for the reply. Your situation sounds similar to mine. I was also dealing with r/v fistulas. I sure won't miss those!
It does feel weird going off SCD but it would be nice not to have to be in the kitchen cooking all the time! I think I'm also going to go with a modified SCD/paleo type diet, maybe add rice and potatoes or even gluten free bread and see how that goes. I guess if I ever start to have any issues I can go back to a more strict diet.
Glad to hear you are feeling well and your noises settled down too!
