Dear all,

I believe following the Blood Type Diet has allowed me to get through major surgery in far better shape than I would have done before.

Even though I have mostly been lying or sitting down for the last month in recovery, I have only gained 2 pounds.  I am positive that I would have gained far more if I had not followed the BTD since May of '06.  

While I have not been able to stick religiously to the diet during the recovery period, I have not had the reactions to forbidden foods one might expect -- I think it is because I was on the diet for the months prior to the surgery.

I did have some complications -- extensive scarring, adhesions and endometriosis were found during the surgery, which no one expected.  I feel the BTD gave me that extra edge to get through the surgery with less complications than there might have been otherwise.

As it is I had Staph-B and E-coli in the last 2 weeks, from which I am bouncing back quite well.

I am curious to see how the gut-flora killer antibiotic affects my response to foods once I stop taking it.

In any case, I am eager to get back to 100 percent compliance and the exercise that I will finally be allowed to do once I am recovered!

Diana.

Such great news!  BTD seems to make a lot of difference in a lot of different ways, doesn't it?!

Love,

Myra.

Yes, I am really shocked that all the people in the world are not following this way of eating, at least in part if not in whole.

I think the future holds many surprises in the ways that human beings will perceive health, medical treatment, food, environment, and so on.

DianeK, good to hear that you are recovering from surgery..

And yes I am convinced that adhering to your A-diet has helped you tremendously in getting back quickly...  

Take some extra bromelain for speedy healing, getting excess water out, and prevent inflammation which can always occur during reconvalence period!!

Take care and hope you will be back soon to your BTDself again!!

Wonderful.  You sound in good spirits too!  The polyflora A probiotic would be good to start now and after the antibiotics!  When you take them now, just take them away from the antibiotic as the antibiotic will kill all your good bacteria you just took!

Thanks everyone.

my friend went out and bought me some probiotics yesterday. She's a nurse, and said I should get on them now.

Actually, today I feel like I did not have surgery at all!  That must be a good sign.  I'm back to my PC editing and proofreading, although not 8 hrs. a day as usual.

I have my post-op followup exam on Monday - it was postponed because of the E-coli, so I don't really know how I am healing inside, but I feel like things are on track.  

I could tell, when I went shopping for the first time yesterday, that my muscles are weak all over, so hopefully I'll get the go-ahead to begin exercising again.

warm regards,

d

Excellent!  Building muscle strength takes a bit of time as the blood supply is restored to the affected areas.

Muscles atrophy very quickly.  You'll make steady progress in regaining it!
