I wish i could give you a big hug...you are fighting extremely hard, and i can hear how difficult things are with the bloated stomach. I have the same problem, i have nights where my stomach is sooo sore that i do cry, i do look pregnant - but by morning it has gone down a little.
some advice which i hope may help is to try and have more energy dense foods...now, i no nuts have fat in them but it is all good essential fats. i try and think of them making my hair thicker and healthier...so nuts, what about yoghurt? smoothies? umm...lollies? dried fruit?
as for the bloating is it like a gassy bloating or full of food bloating?
i no for gas you can get tablets which help with this...which i cant darn name..but ask the chemist, as for the food bloating - try not to drink too much when your eating - this actally makes the food heavier and bulkier...
hope that helps a little
please take care gurly

Hi Chookie,
Thank you so much for your response. You're such a comfort...it's amazing. Thank you so much for reaching out. And before I say anything else I'd just like to say congratulations because I read some of your other boards and it seems like you're really doing great. Great job on all of your hard work! But yes...it's definitely a comfort to know I'm not the only one dealing with a bloated stomach...people don't understand how painful it is, both mentally and physically. So the "energy dense" foods...that would also be like peanut butter right? ahh...okay...well...is that what you've been eating a lot of? I just don't want to eat anything that is going to pack the weight JUST on my stomach because my stomach already looks bad because of the bloating. Yes it actually is gassy bloating...and i've tried those over-the-counter bloat reducers and nothing seems to really help. Maybe i'll take your advice and not drink so much water with my meals. Gosh it just helps to talk about this and to get another person's opinion who has been through it...
