User :   Hello doctor.
Doctor :   HI,
User :   I talked to you about 2 hours ago regarding my stomach ache
Doctor :   Yes, i remeber
User :   Last time we chatted, to now, my stomach hasn't ached at all...
User :   Am i all better?
Doctor :   yes, you may be getting better, as you not getting pain
User :   Yeah, so does that mean i am fully recovered or 99.9%?
Doctor :   90% would be good
User :   So doctor, lets say i choose to eat a hot dog today for dinner, can i put mustard or relish on it?
User :   Or mayonnaise?
Doctor :   no, as i told you already to avoid spice for 3 to 4 days from now
Doctor :   even fat to is not good now
User :   Okay, so a hot dog is out of the question
Doctor :   yes,
User :   The hod dog is steamed though.
Doctor :   its a hard food to digest , go for soft foods like more of liquid and semisolid foods , porridge , juices, malts, mashed pot, mashed veg fruits
User :   Okay, what about turkey, tomato, and bread again?
User :   same thing i ate for lunch.
Doctor :   better avoid turkey, tomato and bread will do
User :   I just ate turkey for lunch and i am actually eating turkey right now...the turkey was from thanksgiving. Why is turkey not okay to eat?
Doctor :   its a bit hard to digest
User :   But since i already ate turkey for lunch and some right now, that's okay right?
Doctor :   its ok,
User :   Like i said before, last time we talked, i was eating the turkey, and i felt stomach hasn't hurt at all.
Doctor :   its fine but better avoid for 3 to 4 days
User :   Okay...can i eat meat though, like say chicken?
Doctor :   no ,
Doctor :   better avoid
User :   2 doctors on here told me i can eat whatever i want, just avoid spicy food, and avoid fat foods, they said my limitation on food doesn't exist besides fat / spicy foods.
Doctor :   i do consider that , but i suggest to avoid hard foods for not more than 3 to 4 days , its like giving rest to the digestive system, the spice causes increased acid production and the fat needs a lot of work by the intestines to digest and the protein in th e meat as well needs lot of work to digest
User :   My mom, and some doctors on here said it will take a week for my stomach ache to get better, and it's been 5 days so far, and i feel a lot better then i did the first day my ache started.
Doctor :   ok,
User :   Ah okay, plus turkey makes people tired, and i do feel tired now haha.
User :   So basically doctor for the past few days, when i did eat, my stomach ached quite a bit, but then today my stomach hasn't ached at all. So when it did ache before while i ate, my stomach was basically trying to get use to having food in my stomach every couple hours, instead of before having it be empty because of work and school am i right?
Doctor :   yes,
User :   So doctor for dinner, do you think this is good? Chicken noodle soup, bread with cilantro and tomato, and maybe like 1 piece of turkey for added protein?
Doctor :   ok,
User :   Is peanut butter okay to consume? since peanut butter has a lot of protein? i am not allergic to peanut butter.
Doctor :   ok,
User :   is that okay to consume?
Doctor :   yes, its ok
User :   Okay doctor.
Doctor :   Is there anything i can help you with ?
User :   So basically, to re-assure me, whatever happened to my stomach 5 days ago, i am getting better at a high rate, and there is nothing to worry about?
Doctor :   yes, for sure
User :   okay doctor thank you your assistance.
User :   i will give a positive feedback.
Doctor :   Thanks for consulting me
Doctor :   bye for now ,
Doctor :   take care
User :   bye doctor.
User :   thank you.
