    I am 60 years old and just diagnosed. Can anyone relate?

    Hi there, I feel it is just the richness and consistency of sauces in cooking. Macaroni and cheese, my own lovely grilled in the oven one, sets me off. I do eat little portions due to the hernia, and I am o.k. with condiments. I did live through a very difficult time with infusions. and...
