I am able to eat dairy and gluten products just fine. I’m not much of a milk drinker any way but put some in my cereal every morning and love ice cream. There are times too much greasy food will put my stomach in a fit, but sometimes I think my system gets too overloaded with magnesium and I have to skip that for a day to get things back in balance. I still keep a bottle of imodium tablets at home and work and occassionally have to use that, but no where near as much as before transplant.
I really don’t have any restrictions at all. Of course being on Prednisone for a full year after transplant hurt me weight wise. It gave me a craving to eat I’ve never had before and I’ve gained 30 pounds since transplant. Working on trying to drop 10-15 of that back down.
I never have liked salads and such so am not much on too many vegetables. I can eat some carrots if they are roasted and green beans and a few other things. My wife does serve healthy meals, but I am bad for eating in town too with being on the road during the day in my job. Overall, doing very well and thankful every day. Was very glad to meet my donor family a couple of years ago. I’m planning to lay some flowers on the grave of my donor July 21st, which was the date of his death.
