Just a quick update for my hubby’s 10mths appendix cancer fighting days, he is still having bloatedness after meal and vomited at some occasions. Just after vomit out, he normally feel better and then start to eat again.
Be it SIBO or cancer triggered symptoms, we thought it will be helpful for us to test for food sensitivity in better management of diet.
Not to our surprise, the food sensitivity proved his leaky gut symptoms by releasing Immunoglobulin (antibodies) IGg to many foods intake. But to our surprise, he has very high elevated antibodies for EGG! Not only that, those foods that under highly sensitive category are Gluten, Yeast, EGG & Milk. Also some mild reaction to Cocoa (chocolate), Carrot (Oh No), Zucchini (Are you sure?), Apple (huh!), Honey (OMG)….
Then we checked back to his food diary and we finally realized that his vomiting was actually due to the food intolerance that body triggered flush out of the wrong food. Thats why we were so puzzled why he was like could not tolerate most of the food, because we thought the safe food (safe for cancer patient) is not safe for him. I think the surgery has really changed our body, so much.
So quickly we eliminated all trigger food. His vomiting has stopped but still feeling some bloatedness after some main meal. I think he just could not go for 6meals pattern as he tends to eat more during the 3 main meals that resulted bloating. Could it be the long cut/incision at his tummy? Just I tried to imagine myself, the tightness at the middle of the tummy. I looked at my own slightly protruding tummy, it is typical after eating! Haha..
Also we realized something rather important and we will definitely discuss this with our oncologist. His food diary showed that if he ever took the colon cleansing agent (Vitacleanse powder) that we shared in our last post, he would not vomit even though he ate the trigger food. He had some bloatedness at most. So I think we might get our oncologist to refer us to the GI doctor who could help us out to figure out better.
Well, its time to face the reality too. My hubby’s weight lost has stopped and start to gain weight by 0.5kgs in 2-3days time. We did a lot of mind, spirit & soul searching about how we should be accepting all challenges and embrace it. We want to be a happy person till the day we gone.
We will update for some news. Good luck to us.
