Hello. I will look into the sphincter replacement question you asked. As for eating I can only provide some suggestions as each person is unique. First you have to eat small quantities and eat 6 or more times per day. Try drinking 30 minutes prior to eating solid food and then wait at least 45 minutes before you drink again. Start with white rice and non-greasy chicken (skin off). I eat a lot of cooked veggies and tofu. Pasta is good but limit the quantity and stay away from any rich sauces. I have a problem with milk, fatty foods, red meat, and sugar. Experiment to see what works for you. Remember to keep your head higher than your stomach. I sleep with a wedge and 3 pillows.

Good luck. Email me if you need more information. triebold@telocity.com

Regards, Bruce
