Getting a!

Post by jznurse2 »

Hello! I am going to be getting a K-pouch in a couple months. I am trying to learn as much as I can! Can anyone tell me about diet? I am a fruit/veggie/grains and nuts fan and I know this will change (again). I had a loop ileostomy closed since Feb., and now need something else.
Obviously, my food loves will be a thing of the past, just seeing how much!
Thanks in advance for the input! :)

Welcome to our Discussion Board. I've had a permanent ileostomy for many years with a surgically shortened small bowel & have found that cautious trial & moderation has helped me to eat some of the foods you mention. Due to multiple extensive resections, I have ongoing problems with adhesions which can cause partial obstructions. The UOAA official website contains a wealth of information to help you adjust to new eating habits & also recognize signs of bowel blockage. Here is a helpful link: ... 022-02.pdf And another: ... r-surgery/
