Hi everybody, whats up?
I've been reading a lot about blockages and forbidden foods and I definitly dont wanna go through that situation! I've had my ileostomy for 3 months now and recently started chemo a month ago, so im supposed to eat healthy but im too scared of blockages!! So im almost not eating vegetables (only potatoes, carrots and pumpkins), not legumes either, i eat most of thr time rice, pasta, and white bread, which i was told by the oncologist i should reduce cause its not great during chemo. Im a bit lost around food because where i live theres no one who knows much about ileostomy so i've been kinda doing every care by myself reading on the internet. And of course keeping the post surgery advices.
So, what do you think? It is possible to get blockages by eating for example lentils or beans? Could i eat for example boiled broccoli, couliflower, other vegetables, with no worries? Of course not raw. I need to get myself stronger :) by the way im a vegetarian!! I was vegan but after all this happened i started eating eggs and cheese. Any other advice to avoid that awful situation? 😨
Thanks a lot, hope you are all doing great ❤️
