I hope you are ok.

lots of water liquid,just try and read as much as possible about the subject.You can be lucky and not suffer again but if it becomes regular look to keep a food diary to see what foods maybe causing the problem.Myself when I introduce a food that I have not eaten for awhile I have the same foods 2 -3 days running so I know what I can tolerate.keeping my fingers crossed that you do not have another attack

Have you had any attack since the initial one??? And thank you I'm hoping i don't
