I had a dilitation where they dilated the stoma and snipped out another stitch that was in the way on Thursday. Well, I was fine Thursday, and yesterday seemed all right, but today, everything I eat is going through me. I'd call it dumping, yet I don't have any other symptom of a dump except for it coming right back out. I eat, and between one and three hours later I'm in the bathroom and right back out me it goes. I'm still urinating like normal, so I know I'm hydrated (which was a problem when they did the diltation in the first place), but I can't figure out why anything I eat (and I'm following the diet the dietitian at the hospital gave me--low cal juice occassionally, cream soups, SF Jello, SF pudding, smooth yogurt). Is it normal to go through this? I've been in that bathroom at least half a dozen times already today since 7 AM and each time something is going straight through me, sometimes I react within a half hour, sometimes it takes me a few hours, but it seems to be every single thing I try to eat...and I'm trying to take in something every 2-3 hours...oh, and I do chicken broth and supplements. I'm trying hard to follow their diet, but I keep on that toilet so often that it's getting hard and I'm wondering if some solid protein (hamburger) or egg salad with crackers or something might help this problem. Any advice? I dunno if I should wait it out until I'm off this liquid diet (I can go to solids Tuesday) or if I should introduce a few solids to see if I can stop this massive outpouring of everything I eat. Help!

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
